Was a pretty snowshoe, there is a lot of blow down. Didn't make it to the lake this time , ran. Short on my time.
Fun hike that I did with some friends. Lake is a gorgeous blue color, worth the hike!
Nice hike-definitely muddy given recent rain. Moderate rating feels appropriate
Easy hike, Great Lake at the end to enjoy. Perfect for a date!
We hiked this trail the 2nd of January. Cold, crisp and windy, but no rain so all was good. There were lots of large downed trees covering the trail in places, due to recent high winds. But still navigable. Diverse scenery along the way. The lake is a nice rest point before returning. For an added bonus, we had massages at Bonneville Hot Springs after. Now that's hiking!
Third time hiking to Gillette Lake today. From Washougal to the Bonneville Dam parking lot the rain was coming down HARD. Thankfully just after we started hiking it let up and only really rained on us once in the 4 hours we were hiking. This time after hanging out at the lake for a while, we kept going up past the next small lake then looped back onto the PCT before we headed back. The bridge crossing the creek that fills Gillette Lake was a pleasant surprise! The creek was in full glory and the best part of the trip for me. Frustrating how many empty beer cans were along the road section of the trail
trail was nice and easy
