Nice little walk just outside of town. Saw some wildlife but basically just a nice easy walk mostly along the river.

Think we walked for miles here and really enjoyed their trails and the bridges over to the island. Fishing ponds for the kids and sandy spots for wading or some swimming in the river. Views of the mountains along the way. Families out with little ones and some older ones with parents on their bikes. A well thought out and... More

Walked the waterfront walk every morning along the sift flowing Wenatchee River. Lots of birds. Young salmon visible in the pont. Good nature markers for trees and plants. Lovely way to start the day.

You can drive down there and park but with everything so close we just walked. There is a little beach and some trails to walk. Nothing super intense just a nice little get-away.

Wildlife, river, plants...nature at it's best. Take a break from the tourist attractions and enjoy a breath of fresh air!

This was a great walk by the river when we were done with the shops. We saw traces of bears, but didn't see any. It was nice and quite right off the highway.

Nothing to dislike. The trails are nice, there are ample places to get down to the water. We just missed a small group of bear cubs. We came upon another family who told us that a 3 baby bears were just clambering around in the bushes. Anytime you see baby bears, you have to be very careful and vigilant. Mama... More
