We were in a hurry and did have the time to do this place justice. Just drove through it for a bit. Gorgeous setting, awesome trees. Must return.

Took a side trip from Leavenworth to Wenatchee National Forest (about 15-20 min drive away).

Ok, so it took an hour of slow driving to get to the falls (and another hour to return back to the highway), but it was worth the time. We were there in June, and the water was flowing well. Absolutely beautiful. The trail is very well maintained and is well done. There are some rather steep areas for novice... More

With the stoppage of logging, the revenue for the National Forests has diminished to the point where maintenance of roads is becoming non existent. For many years logging was done with care for the forest and the land, and provided an excellent balance of nature, access and recreation opportunities. Moreover, the goal of the Forest Service now seems to be... More

Elevation of 4100' on hwy 97 from Leavenworth to Cle Elum. Watch the summit as it can get icy. Pretty views from beginning to end. Two lanes in most spots.
