Trail Information


Jones Road begins at 4,946 feet, near the peak of Cleman Mountain, on the western edge of the Wenas Wildlife Area. It’s a dusty, rocky road that is fine for any 4X4, though cars will have a less enjoyable time. The entire trail is a descent, dropping over 2,600 feet after departing from Cleman Mountain toward the small town of Wenas. Early on you’ll traverse a switchback, the bottom of which has a nice dispersed campsite. The trail then continues down the mountain, passing through a few patches of trees and wide-open sections of brush. Once you’ve reached the end of the trail, it may look like a short, half-mile stretch keeping you from reaching pavement on North Wenas Road. Unfortunately, at the end of the trail, you’ll find an intersection with a sign pointing you to turn right. If you continue straight, you’ll find yourself on a local farm, and on private property. Make sure not to miss the turn, and to continue on to Newlands Road. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route. Visit Overlanding Across Washington for more information, including which trails to take next.

We had a nice place to camp at Waypoint 2 for our rooftop style tent that was off the Clemen Ridgeline.
