For a quiet snowshoe on flat terrain, try this ranger recommended hike just outside of Leavenworth.

It's likely you'll be relatively alone on this walk, since it's a closed campground in the winter and most of the locals will be playing in the mountains at Stevens Pass, but the walk makes a nice jaunt outside, and is wonderful for kids, beginner snowshoers, or a brief workout if you don't have time to leave town.

Note that this campground was closed by the Tumwater Fire in 2015, so be on the lookout for burned snags during windy days and consider hiking somewhere else.

During your loop, take a detour to campsite 18, where you can access the adjacent river.
