Snow Shoeing in Chiwaukum Creek Trail, Wenatchee, Washington USA

Trail length:
10.4mi/16.7km
Best snow shoeing season:
December to March
Wenatchee is the largest city of Chelan County, located in North Central Washington and lies on the west side of the Columbia River. The city is also known as the Apple Capital of the world, due to the valley's apple cultivations.

Chiwaukum Creek Trail is located on the Central Cascade Mountain, at the Wenatchee National Forest. It is 10.4 mi/16.7 km long, about two and a half days hike and has an elevation gain of 1200 ft/365 m. The trail is open for snowshoeing from December through late March.

It is ideal for more experienced snowshoers. For those who plan to spend the night on the mountain, they must be very well equipped with low temperatures camping gear. Chiwaukum Creek Trail is a narrow not groomed trail that follows the Chiwaukum Creek upstream.

You walk through unspoiled nature with beautiful pine and fir trees, frozen streams and lots of powder snow. Be careful of snowdrifts, because the first mile of the trail is at the base of a steep slope and you should only cross it when there is no risk of snowdrifts. Don’t forget to take with you a map and a compass.
