Explore the most popular lake trails near Enumclaw with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Trail is snowed out about 1.75 miles in. enough to be unable to tell where it is at all, there's a couple feet of snow. The views we DID see were great and the scenery was beautiful, but didn't make it even half way.
Will change my review when I'm able to complete it, this is here as a notice of the trail conditions.

This park is not to bad. The facilities were clean, and I caught a decent 14" stocked rainbow trout here as my wife made her way around the lake. Once she was done I joined her on the mile hike aound the lake. if I had to nit pick I would have to say there are more bees than I care for, and you do run into people fairly often... even early in the morning.

Great horse trail!!!

Love this trail but as the weather is improving so is the traffic. It's easy enough my 6 year old can do it with ease yet we still feel like we're getting a workout while enjoying a nicely maintained path. The restrooms are also nicely maintained. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a basic trail.

Nice gravel trail around entire lake. State Park Discover Pass needed.

Well maintained trail with beautiful views of the lake from time to time. Saw about 15 people during the walk on a weekday afternoon.

Attempted to make it to lost lake last week but was unsuccessful. Wind falls over trail at second greenwater lake

The name is what caught our curiosity but it's not as impress as it sounds lol we did enjoy going over to the water and skipping rocks.

Nice fairly easy hike to Sheep Lake, with beautiful views along the way.

Very fun and easy trail! Wet and muddy, so be careful.

Highly recommend. Great way to see a lot of the varied beauty of Mt Rainier NP in a very short easy hike.

Easy walking/jogging trail around a pretty lake. Nice park with picnic areas, fishing and play area for the kids.

nice easy hike for a six year old and his momma

Beautiful hike !

Beautiful views all along the trail. Nice chance to hit the Pacific Crest Trail.

A nice little walk. And of course great views

The trail was covered in a foot of snow so unfortunately we only got about halfway before we had to turn around due to an avalanche that covered the path. We still had fun and loved the views.

Beautiful, easy trail! Multiple lake views, a scenic bridge overpass and if you're lucky a stunning view of Rainier. Go clockwise for the best views of the mountain. 3 inches of snow when hiking it yesterday, which was a surprise. Bring your hiking boots and leave extra socks/shoes in the car as there are some heavy runoff puddles at the end.

Beautiful hike! Some snow in areas, it was lovely!

Ended up doing this trail, instead of our planned one further up the mountain, and was pleased. I had my 6mo in a carrier, and my 3yo son walked. We went about 2.5 miles in before turning back as it was just too hard for my 3yo in the slippery conditions. Definitely recommend it! It’s beautiful and so peaceful.

Lovely easy hike, frost and some ice in the shady parts, beautiful views are always stunning no matter how many times I hike this.

A beautiful hike! Beautiful views considering it's rated as easy. I went clockwise as suggested by many others here and I'm glad I did. This way you're walking toward Rainier instead of having your back toward it for the majority of the hike. Lots of fall colors right now too!

Simple trail! Short one with spectacular views on a clear day.
I absolutely loved the wooden bench by the lake, so serene ... I scribbled some poetry while I was soaking in the beauty of the lake.
By far my fav spot, and I say this after having some serious 'hard' hikes :)

Beautiful hike — what’s not really clear in the description is that only half of it is pet friendly so if you start on the National Park side it is a very short walk to the trailhead where it says no pets and you head back to your car. The national forest side however allows you to bring pets with paid parking or ATB Pass. Please keep your pets on leash and children close as we saw two black bears in relatively close visual range on our hike and would hate for something to happen to them or your loved ones.

nice walking or running trail. wouldn't call it a hike though.

Great hike, nice day. Easy enough for the whole family. No dogs allowed on trail. Primitive bathrooms at trailhead. Heard bear sighted near trail but never saw it.

I guess we are slowish hikers, but took about three hours to complete. Took clockwise trail for max Rainier viewing potential. Would definitely hike again when people come to visit WA, as would be good for a newbie hiker.

First time at this park. Went on a Saturday late afternoon, so it wasn’t busy at all. Beautiful walk, but definitely not a hike. Trail was very well maintained! Lots of spots for picnicking. Bathroom facilities were very clean. Walked around lake twice to get in a little over 2.5 miles.

Did not start out the day expecting to do this but said what the hell and did the detour down to the lake and back from the Naches Trail. The lake is quiet and a great place to eat lunch along the water. Nothing too technical - downhill and then back uphill.

Easy hike on a warm day. 3 hours total with a detour down to Dewey Lake. Definitely hike clockwise from Tipsoo lake as the views are better - we did counter clockwise from the end of the trail on the other side of 410. Saw the Norse Peak fire smoke coming over the ridge at the PCT junction - crazy and awesome at the same time.
