"The Helipad" is a huge rolling grassy meadow (BLM land), surrounded by tall Ponderosa Pines with a majestic view of the Cascade Mountains. Unfortunately, you won't get any mobile reception in this part of the world.

From Hwy 97 turn onto Liberty Rd and go about 1/2 mile. There is a dirt driveway on the left, with a faded sign for the miners' association marking it. There are no facilities on site, other than a single pit toilet at the farthest edge of the field. Nearest civilization is in either CleElum (20 min. away) or Ellensburg (30 min.)

The field hosts large gatherings of RVs with ATVs of all sorts for exploring the trails. There is a private mining camp located beyond a gate towards one end of the field. Pickup trucks come and go during the day, but nobody ever bothered our two big rigs parked in the vicinity of the gate.

Liberty is a great location for rockhounds going up to Red Top Mountain to hunt for agates and the famed Ellensburg Blue. Anyone would enjoy the view from The Helipad!
