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.

We explored this trail on a beautiful 70degree sunny day and had the best time.! It’s quiet and easy to access..... the air was so crisp and the forest smelled amazing. But most of all was the great couple spots to stop and enjoy the weather and the views!

My girlfriend and I were staying in George for a concert at The Gorge Amp about 2 hours from the Wenatchee National Forest. We were looking for something lite to hike during the day while we had some downtime. This trail was the perfect spot. We only saw one other person while on the trail and it offered great views of the mountains around us. Easy trail with great views.
