Dirty Face Trail #1500

This steep, dry trail offers great views of Lake Wenatchee.  It switchbacks steadily from the Lake Wenatchee Valley floor gaining nearly 4000 vertical feet to end on a subpeak of Dirtyface Ridge.  Views of Lake Wenatchee and the surrounding area are spectacular from an old fire lookout site at the terminus of the trail.
