9AM at Dirtyface Lookout TH (behind Lake Wenatchee Ranger Stn)
A steep climb to an old lookout site that looks out to amazing views over Lake Wenatchee and beyond to Nason Ridge, Mission Ridge and Glacier Peak. 9 miles, 3950' elevation gain. See Green trails map #145 Wenatchee. Wildflowers likely to be in profusion, but this hike is also reported very buggy so bring the bug goop, and lots of water as there are few water sources along the way. Due to elevation gain and distance this hike is for well-conditioned hikers who prefer and can maintain a brisk pace without many rest stops. Some hikers will be meeting at Brickyard P&R; in Bothell at 7AM to carpool on to the TH so contact the leader for more details. Driving directions to TH: Head east on US 2 for ~85 miles to Coles Corner. (From Leavenworth travel west on US 2 for 15 miles.) Turn left (north) onto State Route 207 (signed for Lake Wenatchee) and proceed 4.2 miles to a Y intersection just after crossing the Wenatchee River. Bear left onto North Shore Road and in 4.5 miles come to the Lake Wenatchee Ranger Station. Turn right on a service road immediately before the parking area. Follow the road for 0.2 mile to the trailhead behind the ranger station (elev. 2040 ft).
