Protection of this property is the culmination of years of effort to protect a key piece of Wenatchee's gorgeous natural backdrop. As with some other Foothills properties, Lower Castle Rock is owned by the City of Wenatchee with a permanent conservation agreement with the Land Trust. Open during daylight hours.

Dry Gulch LLC, an offshoot of Appleatchee Riders, partnered with the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust to develop a conservation easement on 685 acres comprised of shrub-steppe and native bunchgrass, reclaimed mining lands, winter wheat fields, and retired grazing pastures.

At the heart of the Wenatchee Valley, the Apple Capital Loop trail runs along the shorelines of the Columbia River. This 11 mile paved trail leads though beautiful urban parks on the river’s westside and through diverse natural habitats on the Eastside.
