I've heard that is a view of Mt Rainer but sadly it was only the very tip.

Great hike. I wanted to test my fitness for a 1 day hike and it did just that. Lots of variety. Great scenery. Awesome views. But there was more people then I hoped for.

Starts on a wide dirt road for first 2 miles. Then transitions to Hex Mt Trail that is narrow and steep. Somewhat difficult to see the transition to the trail as you are looking at the view of Lake Cle Elum at the same time. Amazing views at the end (Stuart Range , Mt Hinman, Mt Daniel) and even view of Mt Rainier at ~ mile 3 on a clear day. My gps had it 8.2 miles round trip and it took 3.5 hours.

Massive amount of mosquitos. More then your average backpacking experience. 2 other groups turned around because they were so bad.

Great hike. It's 11 miles from the Pete lake trailhead into Spectacle Lake but not overly difficult because of minimal elevation gain compared to most of our hikes. We both had "heavy" packs on and did fine, but we are avid hikers/backpackers. A cold and swift Lemah creek water crossing and fallen trees blocking parts of the pct were the only obstacles but both doable and fun. Bugs were annoying and plentiful but expected. Go in with lots of bug spray and plan on using it frequently. Had minimal backpacking "neighbors" on our first night at the lake but they were coming in like hoards on night two. We definitely prefer less company but that's life and with a beautiful lake and amazing views... we were just happy to be outside enjoying the perfectly hot temps and blue skies.

It's a long hike and tends to be too popular for our taste but if you love high mountain lakes, do it.

At the end of June, there was still snow to navigate over on the last portion of the trail on the way to Thorp Mtn Lookout. I had trouble keeping track of the trail, but eventually would find the path. Great hike!
