This hike is listed as Icicle Ridge because it's not in the Mountaineers database.  This little known hike is one of my early season favorites - it's got wildflowers, views of the Enchantments, and quirky tree carvings. Check it out on WTA:

We'll stop in Leavenworth after the hike to grab a bite to eat.
