Leavenworth Ski Hill Hiking Trails
A nice ‘trail’ system following dirt roads through the forests. The many looping double track trails in this small tract of Forest Service-owned land winds through forests over rolling terrain and climbs gently to offer a few views of Leavenworth. There are about 6 miles of double-track trail, which is great to get out for a walk or go explore with your dog. Walk a variety of loop trails for shorter distances, or walk all of them for the full workout. In addition, there are “steeper” narrower trails that are also used for mountain biking. Watch for bikers around these narrow trails.
The Ski Hill ‘trails’ are popular places to walk, run, and mountain bike for three-season use. Once snow-covered the roads are used for Nordic skiing in winter and are part of the groomed trail system maintained by the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club.
The trails/roads are free to use for three-season use but you need a day pass or season’s pass to ski them in winter.
