Nice quick day hike. Go early to avoid crowds.

Close to town. Good views and easy parking.

Great hike. The trail had a good amount of people when I went and was in good condition. Pretty easy to follow. There is definitely some good gain most of the way, so you'll get a nice thigh/butt work out! I enjoyed walking on the ridge at the top to the opening at the end and being able to see the town and mountains all around you. You could definitely see the falls colors in the mountains scattered here and there.

Great hike. Views are spectacular

amazing..first time going.easy for our 2 year old to walk on.Amazing views and picture oppurtunitys

Nice views and favorable weather. Fall colors are nice.

Beautiful autumn foliage along the trail. The trail is in good shape. Signs of the previous fire everywhere. Nice view of Leavenworth on the top.
It's still quite hot in the afternoon when the sun is hitting directly. Not much shade.

Beautiful views from the top

Would’ve been a terrific sunset with some wine.... maybe next time

I love this trail. you can hear the sound of the river.

Steep up and steep down. Definitely need to watch your footing. Several extra “trail blazer” trails but easy enough to stay on the main trail. Beautiful Fall colors and plants. Fresh deer prints (it rained before we got here). Traffic and train noice didn’t bother me. It was fun and will definitely come back and do it again.

The fall colors really made this hike so lovely. Trail is easy to find and well maintained. Beautiful views of Leavenworth as you climb. Very enjoyable hike.

A bit challenging for me (but I’m out of shape!) beautiful views up top. Fall colors made it special. I would like to do this hike again next year when I’m back in town.

Close in town, but in an hour or two of walking, you are surrounded by beautiful views in the feel of the wilderness. Loved it.

easy and beautiful any time of year. this is a great hike to take an unexperienced hiker on. they will absolutely love everything that they see. there's a neat bear cave and a couple of opportunities to go off the path toward the water. great fun for lazy day exploring.

Beautiful quick hike just minutes from Leavenworth. Suitable for all fitness levels, lightly trafficked, plenty of parking. Historical marker/ info about the old pipeline wasn’t available onsite, so we left with some questions!

Nice clean and well kept trail. Great views

Fun trail with kids! Great views....be sure to take the trail brochure as it will inform you of what the many trail markers mean

Good views of Wenatchee, fairly easy hike. No shade, bring water.

Requires Discover Pass. Of all the accessible areas around here, I was super surprised. Husband and I wanted to do a quick little hike but arrived to find that we needed the Discover. We were pretty annoyed. Guess we’ll be purchasing one.

Challenging but did not think the view was worth it. A lot of the locals around Leavenworth use this trail as a quick workout.

great trail. easy and steady gain. rocky trails, bring good ankle support shoes

nice easier trail

great easy hike, was able to explore the cave at the end but you can easily miss it. if the trail starts to get too narrow then you can gone too far.

This is a great family hike. It's steep enough you'll get a work out, but short enough you can take the kids. The view at the top is beautiful, but this is also where the trail gets a little rougher for the kids. There are additional trails at the top you can follow to extend your hike, if you choose. There is little shade, so go when it's cool outside.

Gorgeous day for a hike. The smoke seems to have cleared out. Didn’t have issues with mosquitos. Nice switchback hike.

Beautiful the whole way through, with ideal length and difficulty for families with young children.

Great hike at the top of Blewett pass! Nicely maintained trail for the most part. A few trees over the trail near the end. Very woodsy with great views. Most of the trail was easy, some elevation, but nothing crazy or too difficult.There's a shortcut a little over halfway along, just before you cross the forest service road, that's not well marked. The shortcut goes to the left, the main trail goes straight and then crosses the forest service road.We saw no other hikers on a Friday late morning in mid-August.

Beautiful views!
