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.

Diamond Head Trail is located on the Central Cascade Mountain, at the Wenatchee National Forest. It is 5 mi/8 km long (out and back), about seven hours walk, with an elevation gain of 1800 ft/548 m. The trail is open for snowshoeing from December through late March.

Diamond Head Trail is not recommended for beginners. It is a strenuous trek on a monolith rock, lots of snow and sparkling sunshine.
