Description

The Icicle Creek Interpretive Nature Trail winds along a beautiful historic channel located on the site of the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery. This wheelchair-accessible trail meanders through a scenic meadow. The naturally thicketed pathway leads to quiet areas with wildlife viewing blinds, views of salmon habitat, and a backdrop of forest landscape altered by fire.

This trail is one of the most popular walking trails in the entire Wenatchee Valley. It was built by many community partners and is maintained by youth community organizations. It serves the wheelchair visitor as a unique "roll and stroll" opportunity. Portions of it are also groomed for cross country skiing as part of the Icicle River Trail by the Leavenworth Winter Sports club.

Reviews

Icicle Creek Nature Trail

An easy 1 mile loop through a variety of terrain, offering many opportunities for bird watching and wildlife viewing. Black bears are often spotted along the river in late summer when berries are ripe and salmon are arriving to spawn. The trail is paved and wide enough in most areas for two people to walk side by side. Interpretive signs are along the way. In winter, the route is used for snowshoeing.
