Default Larrabee State Park - NEW Rock Trail & Beyond

This trail was built by WTA and officially opened on April 26. Both the trail and the scenery are beautiful. Definitely worth driving south for, but I would add some of the other trails to make it a nice long day hike.

On Saturday, our group took the Rock Trail from the end of Cleator Road to the Lost Lake Trail and went around the back side of the lake to the awesome waterfall and had lunch on a nice open spot above the lake. After lunch, we took the Lost Lake Trail back the way we had come and then went down, down, down to Fragrance Lake Road and then UP, UP, UP the Double Diamond Trail back to our vehicles. Distance was 10.8k, but unsure of elevation gain and loss…

We finished our day off with late lunch at the Colophon Cafe in Fairhaven… tasty food, and they have a yummy hard cider!

This was such a great workout with beautiful forest scenery. We will definitely be going back to explore more of these trails. The WTA is a great organization and they really do an amazing job of keeping the trails in top shape. I'll be doing my first work party with them this summer! Once they see the mess I can create with a handsaw, I may be asked to never return

Chaos, Panic & Disorder----my work here is done.

I did two week-long tours of duty with WTA at Lake Chelan. Excellent organization, great and VERY safe leaders, lots of fun and laughter. And solid trail building skills. I learned a lots from these folks and did some good hard work. The food was yummy, and the sleep was deep. And, can't beat the location. Awesome volunteer vacations !!

I wonder if your group was one of two that we saw while on our boat trip. One group got off at Lucerne and then onto the Ranger boat, and the other got off at another stop (Field's Point?) and looked like they were heading for home. Looking forward to my trip
