From Seattle, E on I-90 to exit 47. Right off the freeway toward Tinkham Rd. Left on FSR 55 for 0.4 miles to trailhead at end of road
My pup and I loved it. It was a great workout with a beautiful view the whole time.
Great hike and fishing experience. Nice healthy trout, great source of food if you're planning to camp. Would recommend.
Did this last summer and it was gorgeous!
Great November hike. There's snow about 3/4th of the way up right now. There was massive downed tree about 20 minutes from the top we had to crawl under which was unpleasant. If you have a lot of gear, are older, or are a tall/big person you might not be able to maneuver around it easily.
Good hike. One of the few that allows dogs off leash so our boxer had a blast.
This is probably only a summer hike. I went (the second week of November) and there is no color and really not much to see. It's a super easy hike, too. The waterfall the first quarter mile is really pretty, too!
Hiked on November 5th.
First of all this trail is definitely not 6.6 miles. It is likely between 8-10 miles round trip. We are middle aged physically active couple and it took us 2:30 hrs up and 2 hours down with very little breaks. Trail is well maintained but uneven due to rocks and tree roots. Most of the trail is covered under tall trees with multiple small streams and waterfalls on the way. Incline is gradual but a little steep in middle third of the trail. Lake is small with limited access and without any proper sitting area.
This was a peaceful, non-crowded and moderate
hike on an early Sunday morning. Beautiful lake at the top!
