A Wenatchee landmark, Saddle Rock with its weathered rock towers and surrounding wild lands is both wonderfully scenic and ridiculously close to town. A high percentage of Wenatchee residents can easily walk or ride a bike to the trail heads. The trails and old jeep roads here all climb steadily (sometimes steeply). They gain about 1,000 vertical feel reaching the ridgeline and are not well suited for riders who can’t sustain a steady, fairly steep climb.
