Wenatchee Foothills

WENATCHEE — A new grant will help the city of Wenatchee further connect the trail system in the foothills.

National Make A Difference Day brings community service to a whole new level each year. Organizations join forces on the fourth Saturday in October to make a difference, big or small. This year the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust invites you to plant native bunchgrass seedlings at Horse Lake Reserve for a restoration project.

Join us at Jacobson Preserve for annual fall maintenance on the trail system. This work will be light to moderate and involve hiking up to 2 miles and using hand tools such as hoes and McLeods along the way.

For a variety of reasons, the Wenatchee Foothills are attracting bigger-than-usual crowds this spring and that has led to illegal parking and other problems.

Spring typically brings a throng of people to the trails, looking for a chance to witness the annual rush of brightly colored lupin, arrowleaf balsamroot and other wildflowers.

A new StoryWalk® book has been installed this spring at Jacobsen Preserve in Wenatchee!

Walk the beginning of the trail to read  My Colors, My World/Mis Colores, Mi Mundo by Maya Christina Gonzales, a colorful bilingual board book that follows Maya as she discovers all the colors in her world.

Join us at Horse Lake Reserve for trail maintenance from 2-6 pm on Thursday, May 6th! We will be brushing out several trails and clearing drainage dips on the Apricot Crisp trail. The work will be easy to moderate difficulty and involve hiking 2-3 miles and using hand tools such as loppers, folding saws, hoes, and McLeods along the way.

WENATCHEE — There has been a common theme among trails across the Wenatchee Valley since last year: Growing popularity.

The surge in trail use could mean even larger crowds at popular spots, such as Saddlerock or Colchuck Lake trailheads, according to local outdoor organizations.

Join us at Horse Lake for our 3rd SageFest - hosted by CDLT and The Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance. Our main task will be building a short segment of trail connecting Homestead trail with the Old Ranch Rd. This work will be moderate to arduous and involve hiking 1-2 miles and using hand tools such as hoes and McLeods along the way.
