Trails for everyone, forever

Home Go Hiking Hiking Guide Fish Creek
WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We're just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website, app and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit that runs on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this site this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone. Thank you and happy hiking!

Please take 2 minS to chip in $9

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

To reach the west end of the Fish Creek trail, hikers will need to catch the Lady of The Lake ferry from either the city of Chelan or the Field's Point stop. When you get tickets tell the ferry staff you need a drop at Moore Point. Be sure to have reservations for the boat, as it can fill quickly in the summer months.
