From Seattle, E on I-90 to exit 47. Left off the freeway. Left at T in road for .5 miles to trailhead

This is a longer hike then suggested by this app. My fit bit was dead so I am not sure how much over but by pace I would say it's closer to 12.5. Like most Alpine hikes the hardest part is the hike out of the basin. Pratt is a nice lake but not awe inspiring I don't think I would do it again as a day hike but with other lakes nearby it would make a decent backpacking trip

Passed through this lake. And it's a great spot. I understand why this place is a popular destination to get to. Clear water, breezy, space for camping and daypacking, a good spot to rest between junctions. On sunny clear days it's definitely one that everyone should try to visit.

Great overnight! Worth the swim out to the log in the middle of the lake.

Pretty challenging hike. Loved the lake itself. Headed down another half mile to a lake as well and it was phenomenal!

Great hike, couple of icy/snow spots to be watchful, I did not have poles but navigating around and on them was easy, outside of those spots it is a beautiful hike.

Quiet day on the trail. Some snow but all easily passable. Rewarded with a beautiful lake at the end.

You'll hit snow a mile or so into the hike. By mile 3 it is deep and you start to fall through. Tried to take the Talapus cutoff to Olallie... cutoff trail is very deep in snow, and the creeks are running high with many crossings are sketchy. FYI there is no bridge when the cutoff trail hits the creek. You have to walk up or down the river to find a place to cross. We lost the trail here. Be careful.
