XC TRAIL DESCRIPTIONS:

South Park: Approximately 12 k of groomed trails, double-tracked. Within the state park, the total includes a series of 1-3 km loops and longer runs through the forest, along the lakeshore and above the Wenatchee River. Open loops groomed in and around Kahler Glen Golf Course. These trails will typically be groomed Thursday through Monday.

Nason Ridge Backcountry: This 20 km groomed trail system begins at the Nason Ridge Sno-Park at Kahler Glen within the South Park trail system. The first 7k ("Lower Nason") has rolling hills. At 7k a challenging 13k loop option begins ("Upper Nason"). The trail climbs 1,500' to access miles of rolling, open ridge-top terrain. The panoramic views of Lake Wenatchee and the surrounding Cascade mountains are spectacular. All trails are groomed with one track lane and a full skating lane. Lower Nason is groomed Thursday through Monday and the entire trail system including Upper Nason on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Challenging loop trip options are possible by way of the un-groomed Nason Ridge hiking trail.

North Park: The groomed trails in the North Park area provides 5.3 k of scenic trails which loop through the campgrounds, follow the river and lake shores, and run through quiet stretches of forest. This area offers a less-traveled alternative to the sometimes busy trails in the South Park area. These trails will typically be groomed, double-tracked with a mini-skate lane (5.5') Thursday through Monday as conditions and equipment allow.

Chiwawa See and Ski: This Sno-Park offers the "See and Ski" trail. An 8k groomed loop with a full skate lane (8') and single track for the entire route. Trail passes through the forest and along the Wenatchee River. This trail will typically be groomed Friday through Sunday. New this year (on a trial basis) - Dogs are allowed after 3 p.m.

SNOWSHOE TRAIL INFORMATION:

South Park: This trail offers a 1.8 mile loop trip and a route to Nason Ridge for the more adventurous. The loop follows Wenatchee River and Nason Creek then returns to the beach through a Ponderosa Pine/Douglas Fir forest. The Nason Ridge trail runs 2.7 miles from beach to ridge top. Great views begin about one mile from the beach.

North Park: A 2 mile loop is maintained along the river, lakeshore and through the forest.

Chiwawa: A 1.5 or 3.8 mile semi-loop snowshoe trail at 600' elevation gains great views.

SLED HILL: A moderate slope, about 150' long. Good for families. Located in the South Park. Very popular and busy on weekends.
