It was pouring down rain, so the trail was muddy and there had been snow the night before. But it was still so beautiful, calm, serene

We got to the Summit Lake trailhead around 9 AM and there were only a few other cars there. Like many others have said, the forest road you take to get there is horrendous. I would say it's comparable to the Pilchuck road but this one is rockier while Pilchuck has more potholes. We watched a guy in a Toyota Corolla somehow make it up, but it looked like a struggle so I would highly recommend high clearance and good tires. There was a little bit of snow and ice on the road within half a mile of the parking lot but it didn't seem to be slick and was melting by the time we drove back down. The snow starts from the trailhead. The entire trail was covered with a light layer; just a dusting at the bottom and 2-3 inches all the way at the top. The snow was not slick so spikes were not needed, but wear waterproof shoes. The snow was starting to melt on our way down so the trail was a little wet. The trail was easy and beautiful. Nice grade and no tricky spots, even with the snow. The lake is gorgeous and we had it to ourselves. Fall colors are still present, but they were mostly dusted with snow today. The parking lot was full when we got back to the car around 1 PM, but we didn't pass many people on our way down so a lot of them were likely doing the other trails in the area. If you're hoping to make it up to Summit Lake, do it soon! It will soon be inaccessible for the winter. Just make sure to check weather and storm warnings as the mountain is unpredictable and snow can come in fast!

Great!

Enjoyed this trail. 8.6 was right on. Upper falls was my favorite. Looking forward to taking my husband back sometime. Wasn’t busy when I went but it was a week day.

This is my favorite hike I have ever done. Maybe it’s because it was my first time in snow and I liked the challenge, or because I had a personal realization mid hike. Regardless, the views are breathtakingly beautiful and pics don’t do it justice. I actually preferred the overlook mid way up to the lake. Don’t get me wrong, the lake is magic. I just felt so in Nature staring across big green mountains while seeing foliage and snow at the same time. Love love love this hike. When driving, there are about 3 miles of pot holes but not nearly as bad as Blanca Lake road terrain. And my Fitbit clocked 8.7 miles vs 7.6. I didn’t really think the elevation was that high either but maybe I’m becoming more of an avid hiker to think it was hard. The snow was the hard part but other than that, a lovely hike! (Lots of snow, hiked on 10/22/20)

Trail was covered in snow! Glad it was a short and not too steep hike, mostly shaded. No one was out today, almost had the trail to ourselves.

WalkingGreat!Rocky

I actually think this is a wonder area and spot. I only gave it 4 stars because last 3 miles to trailhead parking lot is barely a road. it is not even a dirt road. more like a crazy rock road. huge pot holes. otherwise great waterfall. main loop not too much elevation.

The road to the trailhead has a lot of potholes (it’s impossible to drive around them) - some very deep so be careful and go slow. The trail has lots of running water on it and parts where you need to cross small streams of water so having waterproof shoes would be nice. Also lots of tree roots and rocks to climb over. The lake is beautiful and we could see a light dusting of snow on the conifers high up just below the fog/mist. On the way up we did not see anyone and crossed only a handful of folks on the way down.

The scramble portion has some snow and can be a little sketchy. There are cairns but we were ill equipped. Ended up turning around and doing the other portion of the Ira Springs trail towards Mason lake.

Hiked 10/22/20. First couple miles through the woods, the last mile was snow covered but not difficult. Mountains had a fresh dusting of snow and made for a beautiful day. Very few people, everyone had face coverings.

Great fall day hike, with brilliant yellows and oranges against the dark green forest. Well maintained trail, some creek crossings, beautiful alpine ponds and lakes. We got a light snow dusting on our way back. Dress for the weather!

Ditto all below. Note that the sign off Rt 2 says “Sherbrooke Creek”. No mention of Valhalla lake trail. At the parking lot again no mention of Valhalla Lake. No prob. Just take the Sherbrooke creek trail up, connects with the PCT. Go left, and you’re an your way to Valhalla Lake. Once at the lake, the access trail going down is VERY muddy. It dusted/snowed yesterday and more snow is due Friday so this trail will be even more of a mess this weekend. Be forewarned.

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.

Paddle sportsGreat!

Not sure where to record this adventure (Done many years ago, now) because we canoed the lake instead of hiked. We were out for about a week and it was epic, paddled up to secluded camp spots up north near the Canadian border, went swimming. I loved seeing it from the water, colors were amazing. You do have to put in on Diablo Lake, canoe to the other side, then hop the shuttle (with canoe) to transport your boat to Ross lake, which is a def process, but so worth it!

If you don’t have maps downloaded you can easily go on wrong trail. I meant to hike ancient lake but to wrong turn and ended up at Dusty lake. Lake is pretty and easy walk

This is possibly one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on! I have done many moderate hikes and this was probably the most difficult for me so far. I struggled a bit and had to stop pretty often to catch my breath due to the rocky terrain, but it was well worth it when I got to the top! The view is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures I took do not do it justice.

Pretty icy with snow/ice on most of the trail but micro spikes helped a ton on the downhill. Didn’t wear them on the way up. Still some larches out. A short but sweet hike
