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.

Keechelus Lake is located on the Central Cascade Mountain. It is 4 mi/6 km long (out and back), about three hours hike with an elevation gain of 196 ft/60 m. The trail is open for snowshoeing from December through late February and is suitable for practitioners of all skill levels and ages. By December, the snow is more than enough and the lake and mountain view is unbelievable.

Keeckelus Lake Trail is a great route to enjoy snowshoeing and practice your skills. You will walk through dark forests, alpine scenery and untouched snow if you visit the trail early enough. The path is safe from snowdrifts but always check the weather forecast before you choose this trail and don’t forget to take with you a map and a compass.
