Trail Update: On a Trip We Found An Inspired Trail…

In Wenatchee we found a gem, the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail. An old bridge (above) does double duty; accommodating a water line and non-motorized traffic.

The trail covers over 20 miles, paralleling the Columbia River on two sides. It passes through several city parks, a wildlife refuge, walking trails, and commercial zones – with shopping and restaurants. It also includes two beautifully maintained state parks with camping. We enjoyed daily rides, with great food and beverages along the way.

We know the level of cooperation required to build a community trail system, we admire what the Wenatchee community accomplished.

This is a model worth copying!
