Looking to get outdoors this winter? Grab your snowshoes, and plan a little trip to Lake Wenatchee State Park!

On Sundays throughout January and February, the state park has ranger guided snowshoe hikes along the Wenatchee River for views across beautiful Lake Wenatchee.

According to the Lake Wenatchee State Park, hikers will go along the River to North Beach, then return through pine and Douglas fir forest.

“Along the way, our hike leaders will point out various historical aspects of the park, highlight notable stories and discuss some fun facts,” they add.

“This is an easy 2.5 mile loop hike that can increase or decrease upon personal preference.”
