Wenatchee Foothills

Chelan County, Washington

Chelan-Douglas Land Trust

Fees: none

Activity: hiking

Elevation: 1000'-2500'

Current status (as of 4/13/24): blooming

Notes: There are a LOT of trails in the Wenatchee Foothills; the map on this page only shows one possible low-elevation traverse in the northern section. The Castle Rock Trail is a little further south, and beyond that is Saddle Rock. (These three areas are separated by stretches of private property, so there's no single route on the map that could cover all of them.) The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust's Web site has excellent trail maps for the entire area.

Peak wildflower bloom in the Wenatchee Foothills is typically from early April through late May, but there may be some flowers blooming from mid-March until mid-June.*
