Snow and Snowshoeing in Chelan: Echo Ridge 


This past weekend, we headed over to the Lake Chelan area and did a short snowshoe outing.  The temperature was in the mid 20s to high 20s.  Elevation is around 3400′ to 3500′ during this hike.


The road is plowed by the US Forest Service. There are a few snowshoe hikes, plus groomed trails for crosscountry skiing.  There are additional trails for snowmobiles but we didn’t see or hear any of them during our 3 mile hike.  I’m pretty sure by the end of this blog post, it will 30 miles with a 3000 foot elvation gain, both ways, in white out conditions….

You can pay at the trailhead, $10 per person.  When we started, we were the only vehicle in the parking lot at Snowshoe Trailhead (pretty clever name, huh?).  When we returned, there was a whopping 4 other vehicles.  Even on a nice snowy Saturday, the Lake Chelan area isn’t too busy.  We didn’t see but two other people out on the trails.

Thanks for reading!! Enjoy the snow photos and comment below.
