Among the first trails to open in the Spring, and the last to close in the Fall, the Lakeshore Trail provides amazing views throughout the seasons. With little elevation change, this trail is great for all hikers, and the scenery never disappoints. A must do for any hikers visiting the Lake Chelan area.
The Lakeshore Trail
This may be the most popular trails in the Stehekin area. With an overall length of 17 miles, this makes for a great overnight trip. There are several great campsites all along the way, making it easy to customize to the needs of your specific group.
Multiple Points of Access
The “beginning” of this trail is Prince Creek Campground. The Stehekin Ferry can dock here, and send you on your way. You can set up camp and then spend the rest of the day exploring this area, or head on up the trail to your next destination. Meadow Creek and Cascade Creek campgrounds are nice places to stop for the first night.
Continuing uplake, you will come to Moore Point Campground – a popular boaters destination, and then on up over Hunt’s Bluff (amazing views from here) and back down to Flick Creek. Another 4 miles from here, and you will reach Stehekin, where it’s always a grand idea to head to the local bakery for a cinnamon roll!
If you are looking for a shorter hike, the Stehekin Ferry can drop you off (or pick you up) at Moore Point. This is 10 miles from Prince Creek, or 7 miles from Stehekin, depending on which way you decide to travel.
