Trails & Access - Connecting with Nature

We’re so lucky here - right out our back doors, we can step into nature. Whether it’s viewing wildlife, taking pictures of spring flowers, or getting in some outdoor exercise, our magnificent trails allow us to connect with our environment. The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust is committed to providing appropriate recreational access to the special lands and waters in our area. We couldn’t do this without the help of our members and local volunteers. So take a deep breath of our clean air and hit the trail or water to experience what so many of us love about our area.
