The peak overlooking town is very close to Wenatchee yet feels surprisingly remote. It offers beautiful views of the Cascades, Columbia River, and Wenatchee River. In early morning and late afternoon, the sunlit ridges and shadowed faces of the foothills are magnificent. This is a particularly enjoyable outing in autumn when the slanted light and increased mist in the air gives the Cascades a dramatic aura reminiscent of a painting from the romantic era. The spring wildflower season (May to through June) is also spectacular up here.
