Hiking

Thought this with be a nice 2 mile fall hike which ended up being a 4 mile hike with a bit of snow and ice. We never made it to the lake as we got tired and discouraged so hitched a ride with some friendly people on the main road - to then realize we just missed the lake by about 300 ft! Nevertheless, after a little freak out thinking we saw cougar tracks, it was a beautiful hike.

HikingGreat!

It was a cool (started the hike in 20’s) but clear day. The trail was lightly traveled and mostly clear and easy with only a few rocky, narrow, wet areas. The views off all the falls upper, middle, and lower Lewis Falls were beautiful. Easily making this a great hike.

HikingSnow

Hiked on Sunday, 10/25. Caution- HWY20 from about 10 miles West of trailhead is compact snow and ice (not sure of anything East of that). I made it ok with plenty of caution in my newer front wheel drive, but be safe. Parking lot was freshly covered in about 6 inches, same with the trail, about a foot up at the top. 12 degrees when I arrived at 9:45am and 23 degrees when I left at 1:15pm (I stopped to take lots of photos also, fairly quick hike), lake was half frozen and covered in snow. A few shaggy larches left, one fairly nice one, but they'll be gone quickly. I made it up the trail perfectly with no spikes as it was freshly compacted, but I needed them on the way down for traction. I saw SEVERAL people in tennis shoes, some untied (adults), one guy in dress shoes, people with zero gear, a huge group with no gear, meaning no food or even water at all. Please do your research on trail and road conditions before you make the trip, and bring the proper gear for snow. I didn't expect this much snow, but it's the mountains. Lack of equipment, water and food makes a short hike much longer, especially in the snow. This hike was absolutely, insanely gorgeous, and the drive up there was even worth the whole trip. Worth every second.

Trail starts off very wet/muddy, then icy/snowy in other parts. Although people say they didn’t need spikes, I really wish I took mine. I slipped twice and lost my balance multiple times. Despite that, it was a beautiful clear day and the views were amazing. Super windy & chilly at the top tho.

HikingGreat!

I had a gorgeous and cold hike up to both lakes! Arrived at the TH around 9am and the parking lot was full but not too many cars down the road. When I left around noon, the line was extremely long. The trail is in super great condition and made for a very easy hike. I couldn’t find a good spot at either lake to relax without others around but I also didn’t look very hard. There was a dusting of snow up towards Olallie but it didn’t affect the trail.

HikingIcyRockySnow

The first 1.5 mile is pretty light but the middle part is where it gets strenuous for a mile or so. After that to the lake it’s icy with snow in patches. Spikes highly recommended. The lake itself is a quintessential alpine lake though it was very windy at the lake to hang out for long.

HikingSnow

Hiked 10/24. Trail compact snow. Had on yaktrax which helped but can be done without them. Not a lot of people on the trail likely because of the cold and snow so that was really nice. Not a lot of larches left now but still a beautiful view of the lake!

This trail is amazing from the bare tree roots and rocks creating a stairway to the magical feel of the forest. Little streams of water crossing the trail (waterproof boots are a good option) add to the scenery and adventure. Elevation gain gives your legs a good workout. So much wonder to take in along the trail but once you reach the lake...ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING! Everything I could want in a hike, definitely will return and highly recommend. Potholes on the road coming in are for real!

HikingIcyMuddyRockySnow

The perfect trail for us after a month-long hiking hiatus. Not difficult but just challenging enough to work up a sweat. People weren’t kidding about the pothole - all the way to the parking lot. The trail itself is pretty rocky, wet and muddy in a lot of sections. Also slippery and riddled with tree roots. Wear proper hiking shoes! Better if they’re waterproof and it definitely helps to have poles, unless you’re a pro or a mountain goat. The lake itself is beautiful - it’s now cold enough that the water surface is turning to ice and there’s snow all around. Dress warm and bring gloves! Fairly crowded on a Sunday - parking lot was full at 1pm, but everyone was comfortably spaced out on the trail and very considerate about keeping distance. 85% mask compliance.

Sunny but cold. Icy on 2-3 spots in the final stretch, nothing crazy.

Hiking

Amazing day for a beautiful walk. Car park at trailhead was carnage - cars parking roadside 1 mile from trailhead. Permit situation also a challenge with having to create an online account with DiscoverNW (recommend you do this ahead of time - Discovery pass not accepted). But the walk made it all worthwhile! Well maintained trail, filtered sunlight, rushing waterfalls and serene lakes. A little icy and slushy in places but easily navigable for my 7 year old daughter.

We had a blast!!!! The hike was seriously sooo dang gorgeous and there was sooo many views throughout the trail. It was a loop no”end” view mire so just views throughout but it was so pretty! Lots of bridges and tons of snow!!! Was quite slippery in some spots however, we had good shoes and did fine. Just right outside of Leavenworth. The bathrooms were sickening you’re better off peeing in the woods perfect for all ages groups there was no hills or anything it was an flat trail. We clocked almost 7 miles? I think we got a little lost but we had a great time!
