Spectacular still does not describe this loop!

Great day to hike even if a bit hot. Black flys kept us moving. Saw a bear along the way and lots of fish jumping in Eight Mile Lake. We didn't explore around the lake long enough to find a great spot to hangout. If we had found one this would be 5-stars.

Well maintained trail. Amazing views! Take good bug spray!

I love this trail! Scenic (lots of trees ☺️) and easy for hiking or cycling in any season. If you start in Cle Elum, you can have a snack or lunch when you arrive in Roslyn. In winter, the snow can be deep, so cross country skis or snowshoes are best. Note: snowmobiles do use this trail.

Fantastic and steep trail. Was a quick run. Highlight was definitely jumping in the lake as a reward!

Grueling hike up from Deception Pass, requiring multiple snow field crossings (be prepared for your feet to fall through melting snow/ice). One particular section, just before the last mile of switchbacks, was not easily passable due to ice buildup and required a sketchy incline climb up and over the obstruction - not recommended for heavy packs. That said: amazing views, beautiful waterfalls, and Marmot Lake is a great reward for those willing to take the challenge.

If you're planning on using this trail past the 4th of July turnoff don't waste your time. I was planning on tying 4th of July with Chatter Creek via Icicle Ridge Trail and the trail is completely overgrown. Bushwacked for an hour trying to find any sign of a trail. Had to turn around. NEEDS SOME SERIOUS WORK.

Gorgeous views. Hike was nice and gradual. Had my almost 2yr old in our backpack and we both loved the trail!

Nice hike. you can continue to explore on which I believe connects you to the beehive trail.

Arrived 10:45. At summit 1:30pm. Sat around to eat. Took one hour to get down. Finished at 3:45pm. About ten cars in the area. Parking lot is not well defined. The trailhead is up the dirt road from the parking lot. This was a late start. Really hot. 80’s. I should learn to wake up earlier. No porta potty at the trail head. Trail is 75% exposed.

Definitely meh. Long, moderately steep hike with switchbacks. The summit was littered with some old burned out trees and the view was just so-so.

Very few people on this trail even at the height of tourist season (summer weekend) for the area. Not too strenuous with beautiful sweeping views at the end of the trail. T-Mobile cell service available for most of the trail.

*We saw two juvenile bears near the top July 7th around 10AM*

honestly I give this hike a 5 star rating. I do agree that it ducks about the mosquitoes but it's nature! what do you expect? easy hike for anyone no matter the hiking experience in my opinion. beautiful view of the lakes. I went about two weeks ago on the 24th and the weather was just perfect. definitely recommend this if you want a nice easy hike. Little steep at the beginning but it does get a bit better.

Very challenging. The hike up is uphill the entire time with no downhill points and very few flat points. There are a TON of switchbacks. Felt like it took forever to get up. But once you’re up there the views are amazing. You can see into the valley with the road into Leavenworth and the river. The hike down is steep but goes by very fast as most of the hike is steep.

Steady climb with beautiful views at the top! Take plenty of water on hot days.

Road was still closed as of July 1.

Pretty easy but a good walk

Nice hike near Leavenworth.

I took my daughter and two of her friends (inexperienced backpackers) as well as two dogs. The hike in was very nice. The lake(s) are very beautiful. The campsite is nice as it overlooks the lake. We say a couple of people on day hikes, but otherwise we had the run of the place. I can't say enough how thick the mosquitoes were. They did go away after the sun went down, but otherwise they were thick and aggressive. Sometimes I would get a mouth full of them. I found myself covered in spray as well as layered up with anything that covered skin. I would give it 5 stars but for the bugs.

Long traverses
Amazing views from many parts of trail
Very smooth well maintained

We were in and out in 2 hours. Pretty steep going up. Nice view at the lakes. Major down side... the mosquitoes!

Posted mother bear and cubs sighted in area. Love this walk but decided not to enter area today.

Beautiful hike! Took the dog and the kid.

Did an overnighter to Lake Colchuck with the family on June 29-30. It was my daughter's first backpacking trip. The trail is great! Not a footpath by any means, but a rocky, root-strewn, steep trail. By no means is it hard, but it isn't for the faint of heart either unless they're willing to take breaks in between working.

There are a few really great campsites on the water, but there are plenty of sites if you walk off the beaten path a little.

At the tail end of June it is pretty buggy, so big spray is a must! The views are well worth it though.

My wife and I have to go back to do Asgard's pass because it looks amazing!

had a blast out there. bring bug spray!

Pretty easy hike over all. It’s shaded and great for a hot day. My only complaint is that there are lots of forks in the trail and it’s hard to know which to take because some lead to a harder path and some easier. Make sure to check for ticks after! We had one hitch a ride on on of the kids!

A good quick morning walk. Loved the bridge crossing and the little creek crossings along the trail. Walking along the river so picture opportunities are everywhere. We were told by a local after we had done the hike that at the end where you end up on the edge of the rocks along the water,(the turn around point) that there is a cave you can go explore if you have a headlamp. Next time we go we will see if we can find it.

A great hike. My husband and I went on a Sunday morning leaving at 8am only passed 2 others on the way up, coming down we passed 3. lots of great picture opportunities all the way up. 2 1/2 hours total with hanging out at the top for a bit.

We love this hike! Perfect for dogs and family, have done it multiple times as a multi night camping trip going back as far as we can. Only 4 stars due to overly populated.

Take BUG SPRAY!!
