Located in the heart of the Cascades, only 90 minutes from Seattle, Cle Elum provides a ruggedly beautiful backdrop for visitors hoping to camp, hike, mountain bike, or fly fish. The city takes its name from the Kittitas word Tle-el-Lum, which means “swift water.” Native people of the Yakama Tribe referred to the area as Tle-el-Lum because of the nearby Cle Elum River, and the name stuck when the city was incorporated in 1902.
