** This network of trails outside Wenatchee is in a state of rehabilitation. Steep, user-built trails have been closed and are being rebuilt to accommodate for the area's growing popularity. Please keep an eye out for closed and barricaded trails and respect the rehabilitation in progress. **

Saddle Rock is the ideal overlook trail for Wenatchee. Winding up to a summit dotted with craggy, pointed rocks, the trail follows an old road most of the way to the top.

At the end of the trail, have your camera ready; a magnificent view of the city awaits hikers who have made the push. Hikers who venture out at dusk will be rewarded by the lights of Wenatchee far below glinting into life as the city becomes dark.

This is an excellent location for folks looking to get some conditioning in during the winter months, or just wanting to stretch their legs after a long day behind a desk.

Getting There

Driving south on South Wenatchee Avenue, turn right on Crawford Street. Travel west for just over a mile until a stop sign at South Miller Street. Turn left and travel 0.5 mile to Circle Street, then make a right. Stay on this road, passing some horse stables, where the road curves left. Look for parking here near some large power poles and a tree. Park here and walk up the dirt road past the power line poles, but be sure to not block either the gate or the road.
