Hiking Wenatchee Ridge Snowshoe (Lake Wenatchee Area)

This snowshoe route follows several forest roads to a viewpoint of Lake Wenatchee. Your starting point will depend on the snow levels and how far you are able to drive. Either park at the Lake Wenatchee State Park Sno-park or continue driving and park at the junction of Highway 207 and Forest Road 65. 

Start walking up Forest Road 65. After about 4 miles, turn right onto Forest Road 6502 for about 1 mile. Turn right again onto Forest Road 6501 for 0.2 mile, then quickly left onto Forest Road 212. Walk 212 for about 2.5 miles to the viewpoint.  

It’s a long walk to the viewpoint, so you can also turn around at any point along the road to get the mileage you want.
