Sage Hills contains a network of multi-use trails meandering over rolling hills right on the edge of down-town Wenatchee. There are few trees (read: great views!), and if you time it right, you'll be riding through miles of wild sage, yellow arrowleaf balsamroot, Indian paintbrush and purple lupine. There are also a smattering of rock formations on which to stop for a snack or a photo.
Most of the climbs are not particularly challenging, but can be sustained. If you go all the way to the top of Twin Peaks, be prepared for a hard-core climb.
The Sage Hills -proper rides average in the 12 mile range, but you can extend this ride with doubletrack (and sweet singletrack!) onto Horse Lake Mountain / Twin Peaks, for 20+ miles easily.

Singletrack is typically hardpack or loose mineral, narrow, very little organic on the tread. Open and flowing. Trail surface conditions are typically fast and non-technical, with occasional hard switchbacks and steep dips in places.
The western end (towards Horse Lake Mountain/Twin Peaks) features a lot of old jeep road and doubletrack, plus some very sweet singletrack (Stairway to Heaven). Some ponderosa pine stands and cliff bands, with stunning views of the Columbia river.
