We do this hike often. Plentiful parking in the lot located just out of Leavenworth on Hwy 2. The autumn colors are spectacular!

This hike is a little over a mile long (one way). Start by parking your vehicle just west of Leavenworth on the South side of the road next to the river. Walk across the 1/2 pipe bridge. If it is raining and the bridge deck...More
