Wenatchee Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.059m (6,755ft) above the sea level, located in Chelan County, in central Washington State, in USA. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Washington. Near the summit there’s a lookout site.
The road to the summit, located above the Mission Ridge Ski Resort, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). 4x4 vehicle required. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. The peak is famous for the wind that sometimes whips across the top. Road conditions will vary depending on the season and recent rains and road grading. But, plan for road that is slow going, rocky and potentially rutted.
