I was told this was going to be a long hike, it was a long hike. Someone in our group had a GPS tracker device and it said we went longer than the advertised distance by several miles. We left Seattle around 5 am got back to Seattle around 10:30 pm. Lots of running and trying not to fall. Anyhow, very pretty, I would love to spend a 3 day weekend doing it again slower. Worth it!

This was so fun! One of my best hiking experiences of all time. An early morning sunrise pic of glacier mountain (i think). Saw lots of deer.

great for the kids and dogs. no snow shoes required today

I thought this was a beautiful yet easy hike. I suggest yack tracks or snow shoes. It's not icy but it does help. It's a easy and short hike. I'll be back to do this numerous times with my dogs, they had blast.

Great family hike with beautiful views. If you go in the spring the wildflowers are wonderful.

gorgeous. snow is packed well used snowshoes but did not really need them.

Hiked today with hiking shoes.. Snowshoes not really needed..
Note that the pond is at the beginning of the trail... The remaining trail is a long way to a clearing.. If only interested in the pond.. Take left at the Picnic Area board. The parking is $20 to get the snow pass per day..
We did the complete hike all the way to the clearing to realize the pond wasnt there.. N then came back to the pond.. Was about 4.5 miles total.. But if u only do the pond.. It should be around 1.5 miles... Also we were able to walk on the pond :) :)
