What trails are recommended for walking my dog?
- Blackbird Island: A quaint little park just outside the Bavarian Village that has lots of paths, open space, and a pretty lake. Following Enchantment Park Way to the end will lead your right into the park.
- Lions Front Park: A very small grassy area on the other side of Highway 2 from the Bavarian Village. Follow Front Street until it meets up with Highway 2. The park will be in front of you.
- Waterfront Park: This is a bigger park that includes Blackbird Island. There are many different areas for you to choose to walk with your pet. Again, following Enchantment Park Way to the end will take you to the entrance of the park.
Where is my dog allowed in the Wenatchee National Forest?
The Wenatchee National Forest is extremely pet friendly and encourages you to bring your dog on most of the hikes. The only area where dogs are not allowed is in the Enchantment Core Area. Within the camp area and at trailheads, keep your dog on a leash. After you pass these crowded areas dogs are allowed to run free and explore.
