Bonus marks for the beware of the bear sign being deep into the walk, rather than near the start! Don't let that deter you though, this is a lovely walk if you are visiting the town.

BLUF: A perfectly maintained community park and multi-use trail with breathtaking views of Wenatchee River and the Enchantments.

The Blackbird Island trail is a component of the Leavenworth park system and features a wide, flat, and well maintained trail system throughout Waterfront Park.

The trail takes you along Icicle River and out and around Blackbird Island. Even in April, when there was not yet foliage on the trees, the scenery was tranquil and picturesque. I cant wait to come back and see it again over the summer. Along the way you'll find benches, trash cans, dog waste bags, restroooms, and intepretive signs. I was particularly impressed with how clean the trail was given how much use it gets.

The trail is appropriate for all ages and is perfect for a morning jog or even to take the kids bike riding. Echoing what others have said, dogs are welcome here as well. It is an excellent detour for a break from walking around town and you dont even have to move your car. There are multiple junctions connecting the trail back to Leavenworth.

Overall, I wouldn't pass up Munchen Haus for lunch to walk this trail but I'd absolutely head straight there to walk it off afterwards.

Cute little park with a decent loop to run. Snow conditions right now make it like running in sand, so I enjoyed the workout. Pretty views down the Wenatchee. Just a community park though, nothing to write home about.

This is a very peaceful walk. It's easy with plenty of places to rest. I would recommend this for anyone. It's even dog friendly.
