Memorial Day is often the beginning of the Lake Wenatchee Hiking season, at least on the lower elevation trails. Winter storm damage is going to continue to be challenging. Hidden Lake Trail has still not been opened. We hiked Dirty Face on Mother’s Day and it has both blow downs and snow above 5200′, trip report. For up to date info check for recent Hiking Trip Reports on the Washington Trails Assoc site. www.WTA.org, If you go exploring leave a trip report when you return. The WTA provides the best source of up to date trail info and organizes 100,000 hours of volunteer labor on the trails thru out the state. Lakewenatcheeinfo donates proceeds to the WTA along with Camp Zanika, the Y camp, the Plain Food Bank, the Chelan Douglas Land Trust and the Fire Dept.
