Another favorite area near Sage Hills and Horse Lake Reserve, Castle Rock property provides safe, legal access for hikers, walkers, and other recreators who want adventure near the town of Wenatchee.

This area helps the city preserve a key piece of Wenatchee's gorgeous natural backdrop. As with some other Foothills properties, lower Castle Rock is owned by the City of Wenatchee with a permanent conservation easement held by Chelan-Douglas Land Trust.

In 2014, a new trailhead was constructed at the end of Castlerock Avenue, equipped with a sheltered picnic plaza, a restroom, and parking area. A new, sustainable trail system was also built this same year. It consists of several small loops, as well as a route that connects with private conservation property beyond Lower Castle Rock.

The Land Trust has a trail license agreement with the landowner, allowing public access on designated trails to the Castle Rock formation and the 1-2 Divide beyond. But please be mindful of the easement, and stick to the trails where they cross private property.
