This is a scenic part of Leavenworth that is often overlooked. The landscape here is dry and barren compared to the Icicle Creek area. From the parking area, follow the unplowed road as it continues uphill (don’t take the left turn as that is Snowmobile-Only in the winter months). At one mile continue past the spur to the right. At 2 miles you will reach a three way intersection. This is a good turn around spot. If you still have energy left though, follow the road to the left. At about 4 miles from the trailhead the scenic vistas begin. This road is well traveled by snowmobiles. Please show them the same respect you would like for them to show you.
Directions to Trailhead
Driving East on Highway 2 through Leavenworth, turn left at the traffic light onto Chumstick Road. Follow signs to Plain. At 2.1 miles turn right on Eagle Creek Road. Drive 5 miles to the end of the paved road (just past Eagle Creek Ranch). Please park perpendicularly on the right hand side of the road, as there is limited space.
