Fall is one of the best times of the year to get out into the open air. The weather is starting to cool, but it’s not cold, so you can get by with a thin jacket and scarf – but best of all you can watch mother nature put on her make-up as all the deciduous trees turn into vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds!


The Pacific Northwest is known for its evergreens, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have more than our fair share of trees that turn colour mid to late October. If you want to take a break from day to day life and take a trip someplace spectacular, turn your sights to Leavenworth, Washington for some truly stunning views in one of the most beautiful places in the world! 


Lake Wenatchee

Lake Wenatchee is spectacular natural beauty at its greatest. Halfway between downtown Leavenworth and Stevens Pass, this enormous lake boasts over 12,000 feet of waterfront, giving you plenty of space to enjoy fall colours while socially distanced! Even better, on a calm day the lake acts as a mirror, reflecting a fall kaleidoscope of vibrant colours. This is a must-visit when you’re in the area. 


Apple Capital Loop Trail

A 10-mile loop perfect for strolling, running, or biking, the Apple Capital Loop Trail is an easy way to experience Leavenworth’s fall colors while staying active! A perfect slice of the Columbia Valley, you’ll also catch glimpses of the Columbia River and the area’s stunning vine maples. What’s not to love?


Tumwater Canyon

Take a scenic drive along the Stevens Pass highway and you’ll find access to Tumwater Canyon. One of the top spots for seeing fall foliage viewing spots in the region, this park is on fire with incredible autumnal colours!
