Come have fun at the ETS event in Glenwood, WA and enjoy the amazing trails!

About The Venue

We’re excited to be back at the Ketchum Calf Rodeo Grounds in beautiful Glenwood, WA.  Having our dates in June should make the weather more pleasant for riding. This location is about 12 miles east on paved roads from our previous location.

Plenty of dry camping and water is available.  There are no pens on bring your own corrals or bring your high line set up, there are plenty of trees.

Trails meander thru forest land with some uphill and downhills but safe and quiet areas.  Wildlife is abundant and we will skirt farmland and cattle pastures and open rangeland.  Good water crossings on the trail.

Event Details

Come join us for 2 days of relaxing trail riding on the eastern foothills of Mt Adams in the beautiful Glenwood Valley. Trails wind thru the thick forest and along streams offering a wide variety of vegetation and beauty.  Ride will be approximately 7 miles each day.

Day Riders Very Welcome.  Saturday Night Dinner Gathering, Bring your own food & beverages.

We will be practicing Social Distancing and Safety Protocols.  We ask you to please remember that in this time of social distancing you consider others as you move around camp and other areas.  If you would like to wear a mask then I encourage you to do what you feel is right.  No one will care.  Disposable gloves will be available to all riders.  Please do not toss them on the ground (we will provide zip lock bags to dispose of them in).  Everyone is required to sign a health waver to comply with health regulations.

Port-a-potty will be located near the registration trailer. Three water spigots are conveniently located in the camping area.. There will be a bottle of sanitizer spray in the port-a-potty.  Please use the spray if you use the port-a-potty.

Please pack your trash out with you.  The Rodeo Grounds Committee was kind enough to allow us to use their facility and I want to make certain it is cleaner than when we arrive.  Same goes with the trails.  Manure pile will be available to use in the camping area.

If you have any questions please see me.
