The Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington is a National Forest extending more than 140 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range from the Canada–US border to the northern boundary of Mount Rainier National Park.

I went summer July/2017 and we started 6am and when we come down so many people was come up. suggest early start better!

As some others stated the road is rough, large pot holes, dips and plenty of rocks going up. We went Feb 10, 2018. Unfortunately we didn't make it to the trailhead. There was way too deep of snow for my car to continue onward. Enjoyable drive up and back though, there is a nice river you can stop at beforehand on the road.

Easy hike through old forest on the well maintained trail. Gorgeous view of the lake and mountains. On the weekends it might be too busy and no parking right at the start of the trail. Cheers!

Easy,great view of the mountain at the end of the road

DO NOT TRY THIS HIKE IF YOUR NOT PREPARED , it's easy to loose track and it is a hard hike , got lost twice and turned back half way .
there are no humans along the way and it's pure forest packed with a lot and a lot of snow .
I will give it another try during summer time when there is more day light .

The drive out to this hike was awesome. Quality road and stunning scenery.
Once on the hike it starts out well with some interesting sections right off the bat. It does get a little samey until I found the old path that takes you down to the river side where I stopped and had lunch. Otherwise you head up and I to the wooded area and don’t get to see the river all that much. A lot of people I passed asked the same question. “Does it go on like this much further”. So it’s worth it but I don’t think I’d do it again tbh. Probably good for kids, dogs and runners.

Cute little trail and waterfall. There is a loop that follows into the forest and along the river.

closed to public use from 02/08/18 to 07/01/18 .
what a bummer I drove all the way up here from Seattle for this hike only to find out that it is closed .
am trying to save your time .
IT IS CLOSED !!

Beautiful day on the trail. Water is raging, it’s amazing!! Some snow in areas, but just a light dusting. Road had some icy spots but just before you get to the trailhead. I’ve never hike this trail at this time of year, it was awesome!!!!

Forrest Service Gate closed. Couldn’t get to it this time of year! 2-9-18.

Trail is closed to the public for lodging from 02/08/18 to 07/08/18.

Took the family up this trail and a sign says it is closed until 7/08/18. I am excited to come back this summer and give it another try.

This was a great hike with a wonderful view when you get to the top. What a beautiful day to get out and see this today. We had our 7 and 8 yr old with us, they did great.

It was very challenging but the top was worth the trek! if you're scared of heights this might be even more challenging.

beautiful views on a clear day! Easy to get to from Seattle

Probably a great place to visit during the summer. During the winter you definitely need things to accommodate deep snow and awkward walking angles. Definitely go on a clear day to get the best views. It cleared up just enough to get a good view.

Really enjoyable little trip through the woods. Service road up is in pretty good shape and the trail itself is a little muddy, a little slushy and a little crunchy.
Was hoping that the clouds would clear out so I could see Barring better, but I guess I’ll just have to go back.
There was a downed campsite at the far end of the trail that threw me off especially because I was by myself. Looks like it could have been collapsed under snow for a day or so. Strange because there were two cars in the parking lot but I saw no one the entire way up.Reported it to the ranger station when I got down.
Other than that, really nice easy trail with manageable snow.

Attempted to make it to lost lake last week but was unsuccessful. Wind falls over trail at second greenwater lake

Falls were pretty good. However the park doesn't take care of out houses. Looks like they haven't been cleaned in a few years and seats were broken etc. Better off going in woods or store before getting there. Also no trash cans so people have been just throwing things all over the ground.

Didn’t realize we were on this particular trail until we came up to the sign on the trail saying Norse Peak. We only went part way and turned around. We were in snowshoes and brought the dog with us. Great scenery and great workout! Tons of snow when we were on it over the weekend, however there was a warming trend so not sure what the conditions are now.
