Pyramid pass

Anyone know the status of Pyramid pass? I know last year it didn't open unitl mid July. I haven't heard anything about it yet this year. I'm hoping maybe they are logging up there and the loggers have kept it clear. Last year the loggers weren't using it and the snow pack was huge.

Pyramid pass itself should be open legaly but may still have snow on it. If your talking about the Naches trail that crosses over the pass that does not legaly open until July 15th

Ya, I'm talking about Pyramid pass. I should have phrased it differently... Wanting to know if it is passable. Last year it wasn't until mid July. And by passable, I mean with a truck, towing a Jeep...

Are you talking about the gravel road or chinook pass? I've never thought about towing over the gravel road since I'm pretty sure Chinook would be faster.

Yes, Pyramid pass, not Chinook. It is faster, even towing a Jeep. I just flat tow though. I guess if you had a trailer it would be different...

Cool, yeah I can fly across it with just the jeep but when I have the camper on the truck and Jeep on the trailer Im positive its faster for me to go over Chinook. I also tend to camp near 410 anyways. I cant wait to get my Jeep over there to do some Jeepin this summer

So I was kicking around that area on the 11th, up FR 70 to FR 1913 (I think...don't have my map at work) thinking it' a tad north of Pyramid pass, and hit snow at about 4000'. Can you tell me more about 'Pyramid pass'? There is another way over the pass? That's not the Natches trail...? I got to check it out! Seen Pyramid pass on the maps, but did not know it went though. Pick it up out of Greenwater? Any info would be super!

thanks a bunch-

Pyramid pass starts off of the 70 road, just outside of Greenwater. It is a gravel logging road. There is a gate at the top, but I've never seen it locked. It dumps down to the paved road that runs along the 'Lil Naches and hooks up to 410 a few miles to the west of Whitlin Jacks...

No, I don't have a trip planned over there until the second weekend in July. I was just curious. When I go in July we will be camping in the same area...

Went over Pyramid last year on Fathers Day weekend. There was WAY more snow then than whats in the pics. Ground and road were completly covered in snow on FS70 before even getting to the turn off for Pyramid. Did't have too much trouble getting over then. But towing over it probably isn't going to happen yet.

lots of different routes from 410 to 90. My favorite is the blown out bridge trail 41 getting worse every year.
