Multiple hiking options for different skill levels. Gorgeous scenery with views every direction. Plenty of parking areas. Roads do go to gravel, so don't go too far in if you drive a sports car! There is plenty of hiking not far from town.

Worth a visit. Beautiful WA splenor ♡ Didn't walk much because we were tired and have small kids, but nice drive through. Saw some deer on our way out!

It was around 95 degrees when I last visited Leavenworth. This was an obvious choice to avoid heat stroke. The only downside is the rough road for the last several miles.

Easy hike; to extend it we took an offshoot "View Hike" that was not well traversed. Had to make our way through paths that were less maintained yet it was still a fun experience being up in the woods!

This is a relatively easy 4 miles loop walk along both sides of the gorge. Note it is not wheel chair friendly. Starting from the National Forest Park car park, the route is well signed. It is also described on the readily available handout. There...More

Easy (well marked) trail that meanders around a river and canyon area. Have to drive to it and last section is dirt road but very easy to drive. Can see some very nice scenery but not get too winded and be back to Leavenworth in...More
