ATTRACTION. This Sno-park offers the “See and Ski” Trail, an 8 k groomed loop with a full skate lane (8 ft) and single track for the entire route. In total 11.5km of nordic skiing.
Trail passes through the forest and along the Wenatchee River. New this year (2019/2020), the 3.5k “Squirrel Run” is groomed as well. This route leaves the Sno-park from the east edge of the parking area, gains less than 100’ of elevation through open pine forest before gradually descending to a road crossing where it connects with the See & Ski trail, making for an excellent loop option. Dogs are allowed after noon on this trail system!
