The Loop is Wenatchee’s most famous trail. Along the western bank of Wenatchee’s riverfront, the paved trail follows a series of riverside parks along the Columbia River. Next, the trail crosses the Odabashian Bridge (Highway 97) on the north side of town. Then it follows the much wilder waterfront of East Wenatchee before re-crossing the Columbia on the Pedestrian Bridge (the first bridge spanning the Columbia built back in 1908) and returns to the starting point.
A few paved bike trails also connect to the Loop — on the east side of the pedestrian bridge you can follow a paved trail from the Loop 2.2 miles down the Columbia to Hydro Park. You can follow another paved spur leading from the east side of the Loop Trail at the Odabashian Bridge about 5.5 miles up the Columbia to Lincoln Rock State Park.
