Sage Hills

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.

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.

Event is full! Thank you for your interest. Please check out one of our other upcoming volunteer events.

Horse Lake Road may be closed intermittently this month as utility poles are replaced.

Controlling over 20 species of noxious weeds is one of our toughest stewardship duties. The timing of weed control treatments depends on the stage of plant growth and favorable weather conditions so we keep a flexible schedule.
