Nice starter backpacking trail for my young children. The bugs are bad morning and evening but other times was fine. There are two nice camp sites, one is a challenge to find, hidden off to the right side of the lake entrance. We lost an Apple Watch here while camping last weekend so if anyone finds it please let me know!

Nice hike, but the lake is VERY muddy and buggy. Not really a great place to stop and hang out.

Nice trail for a family hike but just be ready to get muddy. Kids thought it was cool be on the ski mountain without snow.

This trail reopened May 22 in a really messy condition. Snow still covers about 30 percent of this trail, especially around Beaver Lake. No snowshoes needed because the snow is packed, but be careful of postholes. The rest of the trail is really muddy and really wet, so you’ll want to wear high top GoreTex shoes if you can. The trailhead at the west end of the parking lot still has a lot of show on it and is hard to follow, but if you just park closer to the resort and walk up the road near the Cascade Ski School, you will easily intersect the PCT. 5.1 miles in about 2 hours, 45 minutes. We had a small child and dog with us. Snow still covers about 30 percent of this trail, especially around Beaver Lake. No snowshoes needed because the snow is packed, but be careful of postholes.

Trail is on great condition, not a lot of foot traffic which is nice. A few blowdowns as you pass Lodge Lake but nothing permitting you passage.

Welp, like 6-10 inches of snow fell last night so there was so much!! My dog LOVED it though. We didn’t make it all way to the lake for time’s sake as the snow slowed us down a bit. We also had lots of trouble following the trail because it was covered in snow and there were a lot of trail runoffs.

super snowy! about 3 miles from the exit on I-90 we hit the snowline and there was about 4 inches along the trail so bring cold weather gear! pay attention to your map in the snow, because we mad a few short detours.

Settled on a shorter hike today due to the rainy weather & traffic. Ended up on the PCT at the summit of Snoqualmie Pass. The first mile or so is walking under the chair lifts of the pass. There was absolutely NO SNOW, very rocky, rooty and wet through the whole trail. After you pass the first lake/pond you start getting deeper into the forest, which is where the trail picks up. You're basically following a stream of water all the way to Lodge Lake. There are waterfalls/bigger steams you must cross. Definitely advise waterproof boots, pants and extra sox. NW Forest Pass REQUIRED..Not restroom facilities at the trailhead. The AllTrails mileage is off, we clocked almost 5 miles

Beautiful trail even today when there was tons of fog and rain. We had the trail mostly to ourselves all day until my group and I reached the last mile of the hike. We clocked in it at about 2 miles to the lake. Perfect spot for us to eat our sandwiches. I recommend for those who want a somewhat easy hike with great sights but not too far from the Seattle area.

This was my first hike in the snow. Everything around was very beautiful. We enjoyed every bit of it. On our way back we ate at the restaurant on the side of dru bru! We started at 9 am, the trail still had ice sheet, and I fell a couple of times because it was slippery. Hiking poles are must and it would feel better if you hike with a wind blocker on. I found a group of trail runners, only god knows how were they running on such slippery trails.

Hiked this on Friday 9/27. It was an easier trail than I thought it would be, I would label it as easy or the easy side of moderate. We got to the trail about 11:30am and we were the only car in the lot and only people on the trail the entire time. This trail was better and more interesting than we expected. Pretty cool to go over the ski slope. After the ski slope is where is starts to get muddy and rocky as you make your way down to the lake. It rained off and on throughout the hike. We missed the turn to lake the first time and realized we had gone too far down the PCT, but it was easier to see coming back. The shore of the lake was all mud and there isn't really a place to sit where you eat and still see the lake, but it's still a pretty little lake. The leaves are starting to turn so the colors, especially on the ski slope, are beautiful. A pretty quick hike, we were back at the car by 2, even with overshooting the trail and stopping to eat at the lake.

Hiked this with a friend on Tuesday 8/27/19. We arrived at the trailhead around 7:30a and was the first car in the large lot. The trail was more easy than moderate. It was interesting going across the ski slopes (minus the snow). The view of the lake was nice. This was an enjoyable hike on a beautiful day.

Trail was in good shape. Beautiful wild flowers. Foggy to start and sunny in the afternoon. Only saw about 14 hikers total, 6 of them thru hikers on the PCT. No bugs today. A little muddy in places after yesterday’s rain.
