This trail goes one way, up. It can be hiked for as long or as short as you like. The natural turnaround point is two miles into the hike at a small flat spot on the ridgetop. This is a good spot to eat your lunch, enjoy the views and rub Icy Hot on your aching thighs. The trail keeps going after this point but you have to go a long way to get better views. For those looking for views into the Leavenworth Valley, you can climb this trail for about a half mile and get a splendid overview into town.
Directions to Trailhead
Follow US Highway 2 West through Leavenworth and go left at the end of town on Icicle Road (follow signs to the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery, there is a large gas station at the corner). If you are traveling Eastbound on Highway 2 over Stevens Pass go right on Icicle Road when you first enter Leavenworth. Follow Icicle Road for 1.4 miles and go right at the marked Icicle Ridge Trail. Take a quick left after turning off of Icicle Road and you'll see a large parking area on your right.
