Peoh Point offers 180-degree views of the Cle Elum Valley and the Stuart range from from atop a 2000-foot cliff with very steep dropoffs. While the views are stunning, use caution at the summit.

From the parking area at the 5-way intersection, you have a couple of options. Take the road on the left for a four-mile roundtrip hike or continue on the left road. If you choose the left road, park at the gate, being careful not to block it. From there, it's just under one mile to the viewpoint.

The four mile option includes a little elevation gain, while the shorter option is mostly flat, since it is an access road for the nearby cellphone towers. To the east of the top, there is a small outcropping that's easy to reach away from the towers and a nice spot for lunch. On clear days, it'll be windy at the top, but it's possible to see I-90, Snoqualmie Pass, Cle Elum Lake, Suncadia resort, Roslyn, and Thorp.

It’s a precipitous drop-off. Keep a close eye on kids and dogs.

When you are finished, return the way you came. You can add interest to the outing by driving south from the intersection where you left the car. From the 5-way intersection take the road to the south - opposite the one heading to the lookout – and wind down to Taneum Road, Thorp and I-90. The creek is pretty, there is a campground along the way, and there are some interesting basalt cliffs and a glacial moraine as you go east.

Getting There

From South Cle Elum follow South Cle Elum Way across the river, turn right on Madison Avenue just before the 'T' in the road. Turn left on 6th which becomes Westside Road. In a short distance watch for a paved road to the left with a sign - Peoh Point 10 miles. Turn there onto FR 3350.

The road soon becomes narrow dirt with only a few turnouts. There are some potholes, so consider bringing a high-clearance car. At the top of the ridge, two miles short of the lookout is a 5 way intersection. Park here.
