Echo Ridge in Spring

The tangle of old logging roads along Echo Ridge (famous for Nordic skiing in winter) offers excellent opportunities for hiking, mtn biking, and running along fairly flat routes with expansive views over Lake Chelan and the high Cascades. This is an especially good area for beginning mountain bikers and our new map has all the newest trails.

Burch Mountain - Eagle Rock

The walk up this landmark is close to town but feels surprisingly remote. This is a particularly enjoyable walk in spring (thick wildflowers) and autumn (shadowed mountains), but the views are great any time of year. April 2014 update: Burch Mountain Road has been graded, making it usable by normal vehicles, not just high-clearance trucks.
