Wildflower Viewing


Stop by and see the old barn as you travel the road used to manage the farm for many, many years.



A fun 2.2 mile trail that has sweeping views up and down the Wenatchee River Valley from the river confluence and the Enchantments.



This 1,700-acre reserve represents a critical piece of protected open lands in the Wenatchee Foothills. Wildlife can move from the mountains to the valley. Mule deer will always find a winter haven here.

A rolling 2-mile trail that traverses the northern portion of the lower Foothills, connecting Kenzie's Landing Trailhead, at the end of Maiden Lane, to the bottom of Horse Lake Road. Open during daylight hours.


Working together, we accomplished the 100-year community goal of acquiring and protecting Saddle Rock forever.

In recent years, development has threatened or eliminated access to areas in the foothills that local people have enjoyed for decades. The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust stepped forward to implement the community’s goal to protect the habitat, vistas, and public access that define the western edge of Wenatchee.

The sandstone spires of Peshastin Pinnacles have attracted rock climbers since the 1940's. By 1965, the climbing routes were well enough established to be listed in a published guide book.

What does a healthy river mean for a healthy community? Clean, abundant water and healthy riparian habitat are vital for fish, wildlife and people. North Central Washington’s quality of life and economic vitality depend on the natural functions and scenic quality of our exceptional rivers, streams and lakes.

Lake Wenatchee and its tributaries the White River and the Little Wenatchee River are a priority focus area for the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust. Much of the headwaters of the White and Little Wenatchee Rivers are in wilderness near the crest of the Cascade Mountains, and are relatively pristine.

Hikers, runners, and bikers in the Wenatchee Valley have long known that the foothills provide amazing recreation and scenery. But in 2001, development threatened access to this local resource.
