Echo Ridge greets recreation enthusiasts with a variety of loop trails that have spectacular views of Lake Chelan, the Enchantments, Pyramid Peak, and the Okanogan Highlands. Note that there is an access fee during winter (see note below regarding passes).
Mountain bikers will find their ride enjoyable and challenging, while families will enjoy the easy open trails system. This concentrated network of loop routes serves for a good workout for the mountain biker or a nice leisurely hike for families. Please be considerate of other trail users; if you're not sure who yields to whom, brush up using WTA's resource on right-of-way.
