Hiking Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail

This is a 10-mile, paved loop on both sides of the Columbia River near Wenatchee. The trail was completed in 1990 by the Chelan County PUD, connecting residents in the area with nature right in their backyards.

The trail features an urban waterfront, as well as diverse natural habitats for wildlife in the area.

The multi-use trail is well used by both recreators and commuters. Thousands of people use the trail each year, and it's accessible year round; even in winters with heavy snow, cross-country skiers and snowshoers love this route.

Cross the Wenatchee River twice and the Columbia River once. Take particular note of the area where the Wenatchee River empties into the Columbia. There is riverfront beach access as it passes through several parks.

Many users enjoy this trail, so be sure to acknowledge and practice proper trail etiquette.
