Beautiful hike that travels 17 miles along the lake Chelan shoreline. We got dropped off at Prince Creek and the first 10 miles were very hot and exposed. With only 2 water stops, make the most of each stop. The last being about 4.5 miles away from Moore Point (Make sure you refill here).

We read a lot about rattle snakes and black bears, while we didn't see any in 96 degree weather, a group behind us did come across one in the brushy part of the trail, so just be aware. We did see plenty of droppings on the trail.

Leaving Moore Point it is a quick 7 miles into Stehiken the last 3 miles are very pleasant being right along the lake. Make sure you save some time and rent bikes and ride up to the bakery before you go.
