Apple Capital Loop Trail
Trail end points: Hydro Park in East Wenatchee, Rock State Park
Nicknamed the Loop, this 10.1-mile trail is among the most well-known in Wenatchee. It’s completely paved and meanders through a number of riverside parks on the banks of the Columbia River.
Due to its paved orientation, the Loop has become a popular venue among hikers, bikers, and those who simply want to go on leisurely strolls along scenic nature paths. The lay of the land here is relatively flat with some steep areas that could prove to be a challenge for those with mobility issues.
Your canine companion can come with you as you walk or run along the Loop, just make sure to keep your dog on a leash.
