The Glacier View trail was flagged in the fall of 2015 and cut in spring of 2016 by Chelan Douglas Land Trust volunteers. The handbuilt top section meanders across level terrain below Horse Lake (which is sometimes a dry lakebed and sometimes has water) with spectacular views of the Wenatchee River Valley 2000 feet below. The trail starts to head downhill with flowing narrow singletrack that was machine built for the first mile of descending and then handbuilt through sagebrush forests for the bottom mile of descending. The trail turns back toward the Homestead trail serviceroad at the bottom of the descent with a short climb and more level terrain to finish. Seasonal wildflowers including balsam root and lupine are incredible from mid-April through mid-May. Peak seasons for riding are April 1 - May 31 and then September 15 - November 30.

Super fun and flowy, but wear long socks because the tall dry vegetation will whip your legs and arms in the corners!
