Park
“You can't miss this famous rock formation as you make your way to the bungalow. Roughly 2.0 miles round trip with almost 1000 ft of elevation gain. It’s a short but serious lung tester. Bring water and a backpack to store the stripped layers.  The vistas/pictures are best later in the day towards sunset when the valley isn’t over exposed by the sun. In the early spring the, sometimes muddy, trail is enjoyed during any time of the day with sunflowers (balsam-root) and cool, green, and snowy looks to the south across Mission Ridge. Rocky Reach Dam is seen toward the north on the mainstem Columbia River and the Wenatchee River confluence is seen in the northwest. Send us your Facebook selfies, your insta-worthy panos, and your blog-destined images of Western Meadowlarks and Chukars. ”

“One of Leavenworth's best kept secrets. A great place for a long quiet walk or a leisurely bike ride. Just a hop skip and a jump from the hubbub of downtown Leavenworth. Trails are open year round.”

Trail
“A relatively easy 2 mile RT (and only 400 ft elevation gain) hike will take you to a fun crossing of Denny Creek that, depending on water level, is a great spot to stay and play in the water! You can also continue past this water crossing to a waterfall a little further up. Best in summer and fall. Find more info on WTA.org.”
