The Cradle isn’t a baby mountain. In fact, it is the highest point in the subset of the Wenatchee Mountains NW of the Stuart Range and east of Mt. Daniel. The mountain is so-named because it has two summits separated by a depression that looks like a cradle.

Take I-90 toward Roseyln and turn north into town. Take a left (west) at the main road through town. A little way to the west Hwy 903 to Roslyn cuts off to the right. Roslyn is about 5 miles from Cle Elum. Once at Roslyn continue NW past Cle Elum Lake to Salmon la Sac Campground (2,365 ft). At this point the road pavement ends and FR-4330 begins (Cle Elum River Road). From here continue 11 miles to the Paddy-Go-Easy Pass Trailhead, which used to be poorly marked. It is about 0.8 miles past the Fish Lake Campground/Guard Station. Trailhead elevation = 3,370 ft.

Leave It Better than You Found It.
 This should be every user’s goal. Pick up trash left by others, pull noxious weeds along your route, throw branches over unwanted spur trails, etc.
