Photos of the Horan Nature Area Added At NCWpics!

The Horan Nature Area in Wenatchee is a great place for a stroll during anytime of the year. This protected natural area features wide pathways, meandering water, and if you look close enough, great examples of local wildlife. It sits just south of the Confluence State Park, right where the Wenatchee River flows into the Columbia River. It is also adjacent to the Apple Capital Loop Trail, an 11 mile paved path that crosses the Columbia River twice and hugs the shore of the Columbia River.

The nature area is a great place to go for a walk on its own, or as part of a larger walk along the river. There is also a good opportunity to see some wildlife there, though we didn’t see any the day this video was shot. Being able to visit the Horan Nature Area is definitely one of the many pluses of living in the Wenatchee area.
