WE NEED $300,000+ to build Phase 2. Anything in excess will go to a much needed endowment for trail improvements and maintenance of all trails in the valley.

Rocky Reach Trail


The Rocky Reach Trail is a proposed 5 mile trail along the east shore of the Columbia River in Douglas County, north central Washington, connecting Lincoln Rock State Park with the Apple Capital Loop Trail, and the Wenatchee Valley riverfront parks. The trail is to be constructed entirely on public property currently owned by the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Chelan County PUD. Construction of the north mile starting at Lincoln Rock State Park and extending south to a Rocky Reach Dam overlook began in late 2013. When complete, the Rocky Reach Trail will include four interpretive stations, connect Lincoln Rock and Confluence State Parks via the Loop Trail, and add 5 miles of beautiful riverfront trail to an already popular trail system in Douglas and Chelan Counties. The trail will be paved and handicap accessible for all nonmotorized users. The Complete the Loop Coalition completed a successful fund raising campaign from February 2013 to February 2014 to make this happen. The trail is now funded, but the CTLC continues to seek donations toward an endowment to use for trail maintenance and future trail related projects.

Approximately 50 people showed up at the Lincoln Rock State Park trailhead to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony for Phase 1 of the Rocky Reach Trail. A ceremonial shovel with an extra long handle was used to symbolize the long community effort to reach this milestone.

"Do not go where the path may lead.  Go where there is no path, and leave a trail."
