Lake Wenatchee State Park is a 489-acre camping park with 12,623 feet of waterfront on glacier-fed Lake Wenatchee and the Wenatchee River. The park is bisected by the Wenatchee River, creating two distinct areas -- South Park, with areas for camping, swimming and horseback riding; and North Park, in a less developed, forested section, a quarter-mile walk from the lake. The park is a natural wildlife area, and visitors should be aware of the presence of bears and other natural dangers.

awsome hike to and back

Great trail, and a beautiful lake, even with the smoke.

Beautiful hike with a swim in a crystal clear lake at the end. The trail was very easy for the kids too.

Easy hike with lake views and forest trails, good for families with small kids.

My girlfriend and I spent the night at Glacier Peak campground and the next morning went up for a nice easy hike. The water’s color was amazing and surrounded by massive mountains

Short but pretty good view of Hidden Lake. The trail is in good shape and is well maintained. Plenty of parking at the trailhead.

As with most places in this area, there are mosquitoes, so bring bug repellent.

Great trail for dogs and people

Nice leisurely walk with beautiful scenery.

This was an easy hike to a nice lake. Not too many people on a weekend but I am going to guess that is because of the mosquitos. This will not be a hike we do again because of the amount of mosquitos.

BRING BUG SPRAY!!!

Easy trail with beautiful lake view. Bring mosquito repellent and the recreation pass. Last mile of road isn’t paved but manageable if you drive slowly.

When you reach the stream at the lake, look for a log to cross it (it’s not obvious), to continue the trail and get better lake views. You can continue the trail down towards Lake Wenatchee to make it a loop/circular walk (at the end you will need to walk the gravel road back up to the car but it’s a quiet road). When you reach Lake Wenatchee there is a picnic and bbq area.

Fun hike with a beautiful reward at the end. Perfect for a midJuly day out in the woods.

Easy hike. The last 1 mile of the road that leads to the trailhead is unpaved.

Easy fun hike. Great hidden lake views. Easy to prolong and make a loop going to lake Wenatchee on the way back.

Really nice little hike, very quiet and good views at the top!
NB : We saw that a pass was normally required (Northwest forest pass, other local interagency pass - available at wenatchee ranger station or a day pass that can be bought at the trail in summer months)

This trail was absolutely amazing, my friend and I had her daughter with us who is 4 years old and she did great! Of course lots of little breaks with the little one, but it was very easy for her and she loved climbing over all the fallen logs that are on the trail! It’s not a super long way to the hidden lake either, and the view is beautiful! The way down is tricky, we crossed the stream and stuck to the right side .. found a trail that led us to a campground, we got confused because it wasn’t where we originally started had the same look though. Ended up asking some passer bys in a vehicle for directions & had to take the dusty road back to the trailhead.. now I know I’ll probably just go back the way I came to the lake and skip that whole other side!

Trail is not accessible year round for hiking and is only for snow shoes.

Perfect trail to walk with our dogs. A little confusing at one point of where the trail goes but we figured it out. Nice and easy.

Fun, easy trail. The returning trail to complete the loop isn't obvious. Hiked this multiple times and decided its much easier to just take the first part of the loop back, not much extra to see on the full loop. Beautiful lake, especially when its frozen and you can walk out on it. Don't fall in :)

The return loop wasn't clearly visible for us but found it after crossing the stream. Some steeper areas but overall not a bad hike in the woods. My dog loves watching the chipmunks and squirrels and the lake was beautiful.

The return loop isn't obvious, but cross the stream, find the trail again, and then look for a trail heading downhill from the clearing by the lake. This is a good beginner hike, and it's a nice lake and hike.
