    Pleasant walk through pine forest, 4 small waterfalls. Easy to follow, 18-24” wide, 4 wooden bridges. Two who had trouble may have not been on this trail. There is a confusing one nearby. If you follow this GPS route, it’s easy

    Mel Malinowski reviewed Snowgrass Flats and Goat Lake Loop Trail

    11 months ago

    While you must cross a few snow patches, they are not a problem if you walk where others have walked. This is a gorgeous hike. I camped at Goat Lake (still frozen), where there are 5-6 very nice flat campsites nearby that have no snow. I also hiked on the Lily Flats trail up to the ridge above Goat Lake. Spectacular view from there of Mount Rainier, as well as views of St. Helens, Adams, and even the tip of Hood. One nice thing is, that though there are mosquitos at the trailhead, once you get about 1000 feet higher, there are none!

    Mel Malinowski reviewed Mount Judah Loop Trail

    about 1 year ago

    As of June 18, 2017: due to the 160% of normal snowfall of 2016-17, this trail is not (as of date) very passable. Right now, you should take an ice ax and crampons to get across steep sections of snow over the trail. Just 1/4 mile in, you must cross a snowfield that, if you slipped, would slide you fast down and onto a boulder field. Yet, past this, most of the trail is clear and good, until you get up to where it crosses the Sugar Bowl ski area. Then, the snow patches become continuous and often steep, and without GPS, the trail is hard to discern. Very pretty up there. The map route posted here is not adhering to the loop trail, probably due to detours around snow patches. All in all, it would be best to wait a month or more to hike this excellent trail, and follow the trail markings on the map via GPS.
