History
In April 2012, DNR kicked off a comprehensive planning process for the sustainable management of recreation in the Naneum Ridge State Forest, a block of state trust lands located between Ellensburg and Wenatchee on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains.

By June, the agency partnered with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to create a joint recreation plan and develop opportunities collaboratively. Read about this partnership here.

Naneum Ridge currently has no developed facilities such as campgrounds, but it does attract diverse recreation interests such as hunting, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, snowmobiling, and driving on the ‘green dot’ road system.

Why plan Recreation in Naneum Ridge?
To determine if the Naneum Ridge to Columbia River planning area needed a recreation plan, the public was polled in an online survey. View the results of the Recreation Survey.

Recreation use is expected to increase in the Naneum Ridge State Forest planning area. DNR is planning for the future of the area with a long-range, 20-year vision.
