Mountain Home Trails

This is a great area where you can make your trip as short or as long as you like. The main loop follows Mountain Home Road to the top of a saddle and has great views of Wedge Mountain and the Enchantments. 

The network of old roads and trails on Mountain Home Ridge makes it a great spot for a quick ride. The wildflowers and song birds are incredible and the views views looking up the Icicle and down on the valley from the ridge are unbeatable.

Closed Mountain Home Road is currently closed to non-resident traffic by Chelan County Public Works to prevent surface damage, so access to the Land Trust property and trails is impractical.

Trail system is rough due to forest thinning operation on the property. Repairs will be done in 2019.

From Highway 2 near Safeway in Leavenworth, turn southwest onto East Leavenworth Road. In about 500 feet, take your first left onto Mountain Home Road. In 3.5 miles, you will see a sign indicating the end of the county road, and there will be a large pull out on the right side of the road – park in the pull out. The Mountain Home Ridge property is on the left side of the road. Enter the property by the old road that takes off to the east. The road is gated and property signs near the gate will let you know you are in the correct place.
