WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

To reach the Lyman Lakes trailhead: From Highway 2 turn onto 97N and drive to the town of Chelan, where you will see the sign for the Lady of the Lake Boat Company. You can take the boat to the Lucerne landing either from Chelan or (to replace about 1 hour of boat time with 1/2 hour of driving) from Fields Point Landing uplake. The Lady of the Lake boat leaves Chelan at 8:30 am and arrives at Lucerne at 11:45 am. Holden Village busses wait to take you to Holden Village, a Lutheran-affiliated retreat center. Make a reservation for the bus by mail. For more boat info see You will need cash (about $30) or check for the boat and bus.
