Wenatchee River Road
This is a beautiful glide that travels through lowland forests and cruises along a refreshingly undeveloped portion of the Wenatchee River. From the parking lot follow the road to the right past a Forest Service gate. The trail begins with a steady climb to views of the river. As you begin your descent you’ll pass an old log cabin on your right. Continue until you reach a red house with a lime green barn adjacent to it. Go between the house and the barn, bearing right around the barn. Follow the road down to the Wenatchee River. Here the trail meanders up and down along the river with great views at every turn. The road ends at a green “No Trespassing” sign. This is the turn around point. Please respect the rights of the private property owners in the area. This trail is relatively easy but if icy the downhill to the trail head can be quite speedy.
