Open - enjoy!
Working together, we accomplished the 100-year community goal of acquiring and protecting Saddle Rock forever. Enormous community support for our Saddle Rock Campaign enabled the Land Trust and the City of Wenatchee in 2011 to purchase the property from Washington State and provide permanent stewardship funding for its ongoing care.
Saddle Rock Natural Area is now a City of Wenatchee Park with a trailhead and amenities. The park is open during daylight hours. Permanent protection of this treasured icon means our community can continue to enjoy Saddle Rock’s open space, recreation, and outdoor learning opportunities for generations to come.
Currently, CDLT is gathering community input about the trails and amenities at Saddle Rock Natural Area to help inform upcoming trail improvements. Please take the survey here to help land managers in this effort.
