*Sauer Mountain is a hiking only trail*. Trail listed added for clarity so that one does not descend trail accidentally.

A popular, pretty walk, especially in April and May when the wildflowers are peaking, with rewarding views at the top of the high Cascades, Glacier Peak, the surrounding foothills, and the town of Leavenworth. Many locals make a point of walking this trail every year.

Recommended Season: This walk is particularly pretty in spring (lush wildflowers) and fall (colorful foliage). This is also a reasonable summer hike because much of the route is well shaded. Note: the trail is closed from October 14 to March 21.

Issues: Please respect the landowner’s wishes and stay off the trail from October 14 through March 21. Repay the kindness of allowing public access by leaving the trail and the trailhead in better shape than you found them. Leave no trash, stay on the trail, cut no switchback, burn nothing (including cigarettes), pick up any trash found along the way…

Access Info

Drive Highway 2 to milepost 103.7 (three miles east of Leavenworth). At the traffic light leading into Peshastin, turn onto Main Street and cross the Wenatchee River on the old concrete bridge. Stay on the main road as it jogs and after about 0.3 mile go under the railroad tracks and take an immediate left turn. Drive through Peshastin on what will become North Road. In about a mile (after the Icicle Ridge Winery and just before the cemetery), turn right on Anderson Canyon Road and drive uphill. At a fork in the road, stay left and keep going a short distance until the county road ends (about 0.6 miles from North Road). The trailhead is at the end of the road.


No Biking! Hikers, stay off the trail from October 14 through March 21.
