Hike 5/31 Icicle Gorge Trail
Tuesday, May 31, 8:00am - 6:00pm
4 miles, 400 feet elevation gain
Relax on a lovely spring drive over Stevens Pass to Leavenworth and up the Icicle River valley. We'll walk a gentle loop trail that offers vantage points from both sides of this "gorge"-ous area. Spring wildflowers should be out in abundance.
The road was melted out to the trailhead by early May, but there haven't been any trail conditions reports yet. I'll provide an update as we get closer to the trip date. The plan is to hike the loop, starting and finishing from the main trailhead near the east end of the loop.
This is mostly a pretty gentle trail, but some people find trekking poles helpful in places. We'll most likely have lunch at picnic tables in the Rock Island Campground. If we finish with extra time, we could also take a short, easy walk to see the wildflowers along the Tumwater Pipeline Trail, just west of Leavenworth.
