My wife and I joined our hiking friends to hike around Trap Lake. We started from Tunnel Creek Trailhead and hiked to Hope Lake. Then we hiked PCT to Trap Lake. We had lunch looking down at the beautiful lake. Then we hiked PCT to Glacier Lake and Surprise Lake. We hiked out to Surprise Creek Trailhead.

The quickest way to get to the PCT at Hope Lake. Other than that, not much to see.

Easy access to the PCT south of Stevens Pass. This is a short hike, with about 1400 elevation gain in 1.6 miles. Not much to view along the trail, but nice lakes shortly after reaching the PCT.
