Seattle Road Trip, Lake Wenatchee Hikes

Fall is a beautiful time to be hiking in the cascades. Cooler temperatures, changing of the leaves, and the beautiful PNW. Our place, Poofy's Paradise is located in Plain Washington. Off highway 2 between Lake Wenatchee in Leavenworth, its the perfect location. Spend the morning an early afternoon hiking and then head into Leavenworth for a late afternoon stroll around town and dinner.

Here are 3 of our favorite hikes close to Lake Wenatchee.

Hidden Lake, Lake Wenatchee is a favorite when we have older family members or very young family members with us. super short with the rewards of a 2 lakes! Lake Wenatchee t the beginning and Hidden lake at the end. 

Twin Lakes, Lake Wenatchee is 6 miles round trip. a great one to pack a lunch for. Not a huge climb, regular running shoes will be just fine. I enjoy the variety in this trail and once again the rewards of  lakes at the end.

Dirty Face If you want more of a challenge! Still haven't made it to the top but I seem to prefer 6 miles round trip with moderate elevation gain. So...go as far as you like. There is a lovely little waterfall and great views of Lake Wenatchee about a mile in . It makes for the perfect family destination.
