is a 5 mile trail along the east shore of the Columbia River in Douglas County, north central Washington. The Rocky Reach Trail connects Lincoln Rock State Park and Confluence State Park with the Apple Capital Loop Trail, and the Wenatchee Valley riverfront parks in both Douglas and Chelan counties. The trail provides pedestrian and bicycle transportation as an alternative to busy highways and also benefits area tourism by expanding recreational opportunities along the Columbia River. The multi-phase project took place over a period of 20 years and cost $3.75 million in capital bond funds, with grant support from Chelan County Public Utility District, donations from the Complete the LOOP Coalition, and multiple private donors. The trail was constructed entirely on public property owned by the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Chelan County PUD. The Rocky Reach Trail includes four interpretive stations and is paved and handicap accessible for all nonmotorized users. The Complete the Loop Coalition continues to seek donations toward an endowment to use for trail maintenance and future trail related projects.
