A short, steep hike for rewarding views of the Wenatchee Valley.

Starting from the south end of Wenatchee, hike straight up the obvious wide trail to the south side of Saddle Rock. You'll wind around the iconic rock feature and approach it from the back. A short and steep hike will reward you with wide open views of the Wenatchee Valley as you crest the hill in the middle of the saddle. This is a very short and steep hike, a good option if time is limited and you want to get a quick view! In the heat of summer, watch for snakes, in the winter, do it in snowshoes! Saddle Rock is a Wenatchee treasure, so treat it well and enjoy the view.
