2nd hike when we got to Leavenworth

Beautiful drive! We were disappointed though, that the road was closed 1/2 way up. C'mon, there was no snow.... :(

This is a wonderful drive, even if you're not planning a hike or other adventure. the Icicle Creek is a torrent in winter and still impressive the rest of the year. There are numerous trailheads off this road, with something for everyone's ability. See WTA.org for more info.

The trail makes a loop around beautiful Icicle creek. It takes about 2 hours at a reasonable pace. Variable and lovely vistas.

A long way off the beaten path and down a long, not terribly car friendly road, you will find this gem! The Icicle Gorge Trail is just under 4 miles round trip, but is well worth it! The historic bridge is beautiful (about a half mile from the parking lot) and worth it just for this much of it.

The water was really rushing, which made the hike especially rewarding. We also had good fall color. It makes a nice easy hike: 4 miles total, 2 miles up the river on one side, and 2 miles back on the other side.

Geocached all around! Loved the quiet, the trees and the water! Great area to hike, walk and be away from the fast pace of the city.

This hike is approximately a 4 mile loop. The elevation change is minimal (about 150 feet), so a good easy hike for most people. The hike runs on both sides of a lovely creek. We were there in mid October so the colors were stunning. It was misty the day we hiked, so the clouds were quite interesting hugging the... More

This is just one of many trails in the area. First of all directions: At the west end of Leavenworth, turn onto Forest service Rd #7600 ( there is a 76 gas station on the corner). The parking lot is approx 15 mi. ( 24 km), the last 3 mi. (5 km) is good gravel. The trail is a 4... More

Icicle Gorge has a lot to do for the outdoor lover and the rock climber. I have spent many days here enjoying the sound of the river and the great climbing. I can't wait to get back because I have so many more things to do there that I have not done. Backpacking/climbing trips up into the Enchantments or near... More
