Lots of blow down from recent windstorms. A couple spots that required going over or under a bigger tree but pretty manageable. We did encounter a tick that was on its way into our oldest daughter’s shoulder. It was easy enough to remove but glad she started complaining when she did. After many years recreating on the west side this was the first tick encounter we’d had west of the Cascades but a good reminder to give a once over everyone and any furry friends.

Great little hike, muddy in places, good to get outside, I would love this more in other seasons. Signage could be better, especially in some places, suggest printing the map.

Beautiful hike! Somehow it always felt like I was hiking uphill. Maybe that’s why everyone else on the trail was going the other way. The trail is marked well in some places and not at all at others. The trail is not well marked.

Nice and well-maintained trail. Whistle lake is quite pleasant. I wanted to do more exercise and enjoy the views, so I did a detour to the top of Mt Erie. The views from Mt Erie are beautiful. On a clear day, you can see Rainier and Baker! I recommend doing the extra part. A few muddy spots, no big blowdowns.

My new favorite hike! Beautiful lake and peaceful forest. Just challenging enough to make it fun. Well marked but glad I had the all trails app.

Fairly flat trail around the lake with a few inclines. Trails are well marked, but I highly recommend using the All Trails app all the time. There is a restroom about 15 minutes in on the main trail, not in parking lot.

Went on a Tuesday around 5pm. Lots of kids heading out of the lake area so had the trail mostly to ourselves. By 6:30, there were a lot of mosquitoes!
