“Off-Farm” Summer Activities
at Past Thyme Farm
One of our favorite walks / hikes is just up the valley at Mission Ridge Ski Resort (Listed below as Wenatchee Mountain). The wildflowers are plentiful, lots of easily accessed terrain and if your a skier, a different perspective of the local mountain we've all grown to appreciate.
One of the highlights of this walk is the remains of the Liberator B-24 Bomber that crashed into the mountain in 1944. Many parts of the bomber can still be seen mixed in with the wildflowers.
All these trails listed below require a “Northwest Forest Pass” for parking.
