The bowl-shaped Sandstone Creek ride is at the northern end of Cle Elum Ridge, crossing some rugged terrain which has seen some logging in recent years.
Not long enough to be considered a destination trail, this easily accessible terrain offers a lot of variety for such a short ride and enough elevation gain to create a challenging ascent and some fun downhill.
There is a road version of the Sandstone Creek loop, which starts from FR4305, climbs FR110 and FR113 to West Fork Teanaway road, then descending FR114 and FR113 to FR4305.
Note: the Sandstone Creek and Dingbat Creek areas used to be open to Orv, so there are many, many 'singletrack' trails (mis)leading in every direction.
Stick to the ridgeline and just work the bowl, although these other trails often provide fast access to Sandstone Creek and back to the TH.
With the W. Fork Teanaway Tr1353 nearby, this trail does not get as much use, but combined with the West Fork Teanaway Ridge trail, offers enough terrain to fill a day.
The typical 6.4mi (850' ascent) West Fork Teanaway Ridge CCW loop can be expanded by riding Clear Cut and Lunch Rocks.
The area topo map shows some of the Carlson Canyon and Camp Seventeen Canyon single track loops in the area, with some ties to Rat Pac, useful terrain in the early season when the higher elevations are still snowed in or not yet cleared of treefall.
The 4mi Camp Seventeen Canyon loop is not much more than a warm up. To the north of the Teanaway campground, the 5mi CW 'Lick Creek' loop is another short run over very moderate terrain. The trails listed as 'Cattle Trail' are...cattle trails.
