Driving Direction: Drive Highway 2 to milepost 103.7 (three miles east of Leavenworth). At the traffic light leading into Peshastin, turn onto Main Street and cross the Wenatchee River on the old concrete bridge. Stay on the main road as it jogs and after about 0.3 mile go under the railroad tracks and take an immediate left turn. Drive through Peshastin on what will become North Road. In about a mile (after the Icicle Ridge Winery and just before the cemetery), turn right on Anderson Canyon Road and drive uphill. At a fork in the road, stay left and keep going a short distance until the county road ends (about 0.6 miles from North Road). The trailhead is at the end of the road. Pleas note that the trail is closed from October 14 to March 21.

Trail stats: Roundtrip distance is roughly 5.5 miles top is 3110 feet and 1800 foot gain. No permits are needed this starts on private property so please respect that.
Directions are the best estimates that we have so please bring map and compass and or GPS.
