WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We’re just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit run on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this website this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Of course, time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone.

Please take 2 minutes to chip in $9.

Getting There

From Chelan, take the Lady of the Lake ferry to the village of Stehekin, a trip of 2.5 to 4 hours, depending on which ferry you catch. Note that each ferry only makes one trip per day from Chelan, so plan on overnighting in Stehekin in order to complete this hike.

From the ferry landing, catch the bus up valley to the High Bridge stop at the end of the road. A one-way trip costs $7 per adult. No facilities exist at the trailhead.
