If You Live In Washington, You’ll Want To Visit This Amazing Park This Winter
Outdoor enthusiasts, rejoice: Not every local or state park in Washington closes for the winter. In fact, some of them are even more beautiful (and fun) this time of year. If you’re aching to explore the great outdoors this season, head to Lake Wenatchee State Park.
Lake Wenatchee State Park is located 18 miles northwest of Leavenworth on State Route 207.
This means you can work a visit into a trip to Leavenworth, Washington’s winter wonderland.
Lake Wenatchee’s campgrounds close for the winter, but the park itself stays open.
You can enjoy the 30 miles of trails on snowshoes or cross-country skis.
The park is a blast in any season, but when it snows, you’ll find an impressive sled hill.
The Sled Hill is in the snow-covered space over an access road, groomed every day to provide a smooth gliding surface. To find it, enter through the park’s south section and follow the signs to the Sno-Park.
Lake Wenatchee is a Pacific Northwest icon.
Hiking around the gorgeous glacial lake when the ground is covered in snow will make you fall in love with Washington all over again.
Even in winter, you’re likely to spot some wildlife here.
The park sees an average of 150 inches of snowfall every year.
If the area where you live doesn’t get much snow, you can always come here to get your fill.
