    Chris Brush reviewed Lake 22 Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    I was here on a solo outing yesterday, perfect day for a hike. The path starts out gently enough, a pretty dirt staircase through forest. You can hear water trickling through the forest many times along the way. A bridge crosses the stream around a mile in, a particularly pretty waterfall. Here the trail gets steeper, with more rocks and some water on the path. Gentle but persistent switchbacks lead to a long talus slope with the wall of lake 22 looming above, seemingly insurmountable. The talus is a jumble of sharp rock, but navigable. I saw several families with little kids, but they were tough little kids! (It amazes me what passes for a family stroll in the NW, for some people this would be a very tough hike). The trail switches back and heads toward the large stream which outlets from the lake where it finally flattens out. There is a hidden waterfall here which I plan to come back for. Onward a bit further is the lake itself, a small-ish, gorgeous turquoise lake with an enormous steep wall behind it. A path goes all around the lake, worth the time it takes to do it. Best time for photography at the lake is probably morning, although later is interesting too, with filtered light through the pyramidal peaks behind the lake. I was told by someone that for a weekday, it was pretty crowded, at the lake, but it wasn't by the time I got there. But expect crowds on the weekend.
