      Rolling Sage Hills on the edge of Wenatchee. Hard pack and smooth.

      Trails open to horses on June 15th. Get your mountain biking and hiking in before the piles of horse excrement covers the trails.

      Seasonal Closure: Every winter the PUD and CDLT properties in the the Sage Hills are closed from December 1 to April 1. In winter, mule deer move down into these lands and, at a time when they are nearly starving, they can ill afford the calorie expenditure needed to avoid people and pets
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
      Land Status: Conservation Reserve
      Day Drive Trail Head google parking directions
      Access Info:
      •Day Road Access. Drive west (uphill) on Fifth Street 0.6 mile past its intersection with Western Avenue. Turn right on Surry and, after 150 yards, turn left on Lester Road. Drive uphill about 200 yards and turn right on Day Road. Follow Day Road as it makes a few right-angle turns, first to the left, then to the right. Just before the pavement ends and before all the ‘Stay Out’ signs, enter a small parking lot on the left owned by the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust. A trail heads uphill from the parking lot and intersects the Lester Trail in about 70 yards. Notes: This parking lot has an automatic gate that is closed by a timer at 7 pm. Also, if the lot is full (possible on spring weekends), use the Lester Trail Parking or the Fifth Street Overflow Parking.
      •Fifth Street Overflow Parking. On spring weekends, the Sage Hills can get enough visitors to fill the small parking areas close to the trails. During this time, mountain bikers are asked to park along Fifth Street between Jennings Street and Surry Road (about 0.5 miles west, or uphill, of Western Avenue). Ride from here up to the Day Road Access.
      Horselake Road Trailhead. From the intersection of Wenatchee Avenue and Horselake Road at the north end of Wenatchee, drive west (uphill) on Horselake Road. In one mile, the pavement ends and you can use a pullout on the right to park (good place for mountain bikers or trail runners wanting a longer route). Or drive another 2.3 miles up Horselake Road and use the parking lot (on the right) that's on the opposite side of the road from the trail. The parking lot and the vault toilet here were built by the Land Trust in 2009.
