Take time to visit the gorge - beautiful beyond imagination - full roaring when we were there, yet kayaks abound.

This is a relatively flat 4 mile hike on a groomed trail beside the river. Beautiful landscape, quiet and great smelling.

If you are looking for a nice way to walk off the large meal that you had in Leavenworth, I would say this would be a great place to do it. The hike is very easy so anyone would be able to make it and...More

I loved this loop trail hike and we were ahead of the approaching rain. The trail parallels the beautiful Icicle River and then crosses the river winding through a mossy forest. The river was roaring with high water which you could hear on most of...More

This was a beautiful hike. Simple and the perfect length. Took a toddler in a jogging stroller and only needed to pick up the stroller a couple times. Highly recommend!

Some pretty views. However, WAY too long for a beginner. I strongly suggest starting out early in the day so as to avoid traveling in the woods at night. It takes more than 2 hours if you stop periodically to take photos. I also strongly...More
