Sage Hills

The Sage Hills trails are managed in partnership with the Chelan Douglas Land Trust

Trail Access Info: Seasonal Closure: Every winter the PUD and CDLT properties in the Sage Hills are closed from December 1 to April 1. In winter, mule deer move down into these lands and, at a time when they are nearly starving, they can ill afford the calorie expenditure needed to avoid people and pets.
