I really enjoy it up here, super quiet and peaceful and the views are AMAZING! I love when it's windy! The only thing I dislike is how dirty my truck gets on the long dusty gravel road to the top! Ha ha! Also wish there was some kind of water, I always love a destination with water! If you love a great view though this is a must!

This is an extremely out-there, desert-y hike, but can be fun with less experienced hikers and families or larger groups. We would go again! (Bring tons of water)

Lots of trail lengths to meet anyones energy level. 2 to 7 mile loops. Quiet and nice territorial views. Fairly level unless you start at zoom. We go fairly often with our dog. Cross country skiing is really great in the winter. Nice mix of trails for all recreational activity.

If you drive to the upper parking lot, there lies many trails to trek. A lot of them connect and are very well marked at each junction and along the way. Short hikes, around 1.2k or connect a few for upwards of 15-20k. Some are a bit exposed so a hat or good sunblock would be needed in the high heat season. Definitely a good choice for hiking in the Lake Chelan area.

This was a nice open trail fairly close to the city of Chelan. There were quite a few interconnected trails and they were well marked. Each trail had a map at the beginning and you can easily plan which trails you would like to take. This is a good place for horses and trail running along with hiking. In the winter, cross country skiing and snowmobiling access is available.
