Trails

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.

About Nason Creek - Every year, endangered Spring Chinook and threatened steelhead migrate up hundreds of miles of river, making their way to Nason Creek. Join Cascade Fisheries and Chelan-Douglas Land Trust for light to moderate work that includes a variety of tasks such as removing invasive plants, seed collecting, and brush clearing.

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.

Join us on Tuesday, September 28th from 9 am - 12 pm for brush removal at Horse Lake Reserve. This work will likely be light to moderate and involve hiking 2-5 miles, bending, crouching, and using hand tools such as loppers and hand saws 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.

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.
