This loop is beautiful! We got some many great fall pictures! It’s a really easy hike but the river and trees surround you are great! Worth the time! Follow all our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists.

Pretty decent and I crowded home at this time of year. You get some really great views of the mountains. The lakes are nothing special but there is a cool old forestry cabin up top. Worth the time but there are much better options around. Follow all our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists!

I enjoyed this well maintained trail. It was a nice and easy hike for this 7 month preggo lady! 360 views to boot. The fire lookout was cordoned off when there but I was told by the very friendly volunteer (Mike - former Forest Services Ranger) that it is still in use. Would love to return in the winter to snowshoe Lookout Mountain!

Truly the hike of a lifetime! The type of trail that gets more challenging and more majestic with every mile. I think about this afternoon regularly and can't wait to come back some day. Not to be missed!

A few too many people for my liking. Hard hike but the view was pretty.

It does not have a stunning scenery but it was very peaceful easy walking along the pathway and sitting on the big rocks and looking down the lake from it and it was the most peaceful moment ever and also so good for meditation :) It’s the best part of this hiking! It’s probably good for fall and easy hiking!

Great hike for my puppy and me, great view too!

We hiked this going clockwise because we missed the counter-clockwise trailhead. Still a very scenic hike! I have a knee that does not do well on long steep downhill hikes, so taking the clockwise direction actually helped because the east side (Lake Rainy side) has steeper grades in sections. The halfway point and second half of the hike (west side of Lake Anne) is the most scenic. Beautiful! If you do this hike clockwise, you will find yourself glancing backward occasionally for the views on the second half.

A great late summer hike. Trail is wet at places from the rains over the week but nothing too bad or uncrossable. Couple of fallen trees too but again - crossable. The last mile sees pretty much most of the elevation gain - but that view of the lake - so worth it.

It looks like they are working on the road to the trailhead. All types of vehicles are able to make it to the parking lot and trailhead. Very nice paved road until you get about 12 miles from trailhead. From there, no big rocks/ruts, but very washboard! I drove very slow much of the way in a Corolla, some people cruised by going 30mph. Very nice trailhead area with bathrooms. It was full with about 20 cars along road as we left.
4.4 miles, 2 hours roughly to lake, another .5 miles to the far end of lake.
Dress for fall, on our way back, saw people going up in shorts, tank tops, sandals, and little gear. They were already looking and commenting on being cold. It was cool and breezy at the lake.
No mountain goats out today.
Didn’t catch any fish. Had a bite. Tried some slow spinning flies, spinners, and power bait. We’ll have to do more research before fishing there again.

This is an ambitious day hike but better than colchuck after 5 miles in. Also don’t need to drive that dreaded dirt road. Must dedicate all day. Two lakes and in between had stunning beauty. Also saw a deer, goats, and even a brown bear all right along trail.

Trail in great shape, a little muddy and could be slick if raining. Would do again, totally a great hike for backpacking.

Fantastic family hike. We loved that it was a loop trail instead of the typical out and back that most hikes are. We recommend that you take the trail clockwise, especially if you are taking kids. Clockwise seems to have more upfront things to look at, while counterclockwise starts out with about a mile of forest views that are serene, but not as engaging as the falls and rapids you get going clockwise. Overall a truly enjoyable outing for our whole family.

Sooo pretty! The trees are changing colors so it’s perfect for your larches fix these next couple weeks. Follow the cairns and in the core zone, the trail usually hugged the lakes until it takes you back up to the left down down down many boulder fields. We clocked 20.1 miles with 5,534ft of elevation gain. 12 hours even with three breaks. 1 hr 45 minutes up aasgard.

Enjoyed hiking and exploring the John Wayne Trail and Snoqualmie Tunnel..Lots of history!! Make sure you bring your headlamps. Discovery Pass required, parking and restrooms before trailhead.

One of the hardest but most fulfilling hikes for me. We went all the way up to Earl Peak and was blown away by the views. This is a continuously steady incline trail though. Brought our dog and she did great. Started hiking at 4pm and no one was going up but saw about 5 people coming down. Great hike and would definitely do it again.

Fun trail with kids! Great views....be sure to take the trail brochure as it will inform you of what the many trail markers mean

We went counterclockwise by accident, not having read any reviews other than talking to locals. I was feeling bad for those we met coming up who were going clockwise, because the trail up going that way is gnarly. Steps up of 20-25 inches. Narrow, NO view, dusty. relentless upward like climbing a ladder sometimes. Going down the gnarly sections, one can simply hop down, but I can't hop up! Clockwise this is probably a "hard" trail and gets two stars. Going the right way, one gets constant views for the effort. It is sunny for the first 60% of the trail going the "correct" way, counterclockwise. Take water, because Lake Anne is it in the fall. There is probably more water in the midsummer and snow thru June or later. For those not familiar with the Cascades, thinking that a 5000 ft pass is wimpy, better think again. They get serious snow up here and winter at 7000 feet in the north Cascades is like winter at 11000 feet in the Rockies. Prepare to spend 6 hours on the trail. It's almost the perfect day hike. We are from Nevada, and used to being the only ones on the trail. This trail seemed crowded, probably passed 15 groups going the other way, no idea how many people going the same way as we were.

Do this trail in the fall, the colors at the lakes are gorgeous.

Foggy Dew is one of my favorite mountain biking trails. It's a very physically challenging climb, and much of it is very technical. The ride back down is a blast.

This has to be one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done! We did Stuart and colchuck in the same day. It was 12.5 miles total. Took about 8 hours with an hour stop to enjoy the views

Bridge has been repaired. Entire trail is through area devestated by 2015 fire. Almost no shade.

Beautiful, short, easy hike. German Shepherd loved the water. Great place to end the day after other hikes in the area

Great, easy hike. Lake is absolutely beautiful, could spend the whole day there. Took German Shepherd and wasn’t quite enough to tire him out.

Pretty views through the whole trail, but randomly ends. Took German Shepherd and incredibly difficult walking back down the trail, due to rocks and steepness. He loves the creek, if I went back I would hike about a mile in and stay at the creek.

Good views of Wenatchee, fairly easy hike. No shade, bring water.

Good easy hike. A favorite of mine

I have been wanting to do this hike for a while in one day and last Saturday 9/8 /2018 started at 5 am from Stuart Lake Trail-head where my wife dropped me and finished at 7 pm in Snow lakes Trail-head. Asgard was definitely hard for me . Doing this hike in a day certainly pushed me to the limit and more , however the reward is fantastic , the landscape is very beautiful . I clocked 23 miles in 14 hours. An amazing hike !
