This 3,800-acre property consists of 8 checkerboard sections in Kittitas County, Washington. Located along Interstate I-90 and adjacent to Keechelus Lake and the Yakima River, these parcels are a critical component of the Mountains to Sound Greenway. In addition to their significance of providing stunning views of the area and habitat for wildlife, several parcels border the John Wayne Trail, serving hikers, mountain bikers, cross-country skiers, and equestrians. Collaborating with the Greenway Trust, TPL purchased the land from Plum Creek Land Company in Spring 2003 and conveyed it the U.S. Forest Service.
