Snoqualmie Pass, Washington Map

Done this hike many times and really like it, there is a reason it's so popular. Good views throughout the hike. There will be lots of people and dogs.

We had great weather. Easy trail for the first mile or two. Take a right at the poorly marked trail to loop back up to the peak. There begins the grunt. Great spot for lunch.

What a great view at the summit! But!! It's very very challenging hike.

The nice thing about this hike was the multiple paths you can take to find a nice quiet area to sit and enjoy the view. definitely a quick easy day hike. parts of the trail was rocky but easy to walk through and easy parking but you need a northwest forest pass or you can pay for one when you get there.

The trail brings great views but it is kind of hard to see since there are a lot of roots

My fave hike of the season! I loved the varied terrain. Incline in fairly steady on this hike. I went early July and still crossed a few snow mounds. Trek poles sure helped but not necessary. Cloudy so no view of My Rainier, but saw Guye Peak and Red Mountain. I thought the catwalk toward the end of the hike was going to be nerve racking but it was wider than I expected.

Check it off the list. Great views of Mt Rainier, McClellan Butte, Mt. Defiance and Mason Lake. Harder than Mt. Si because hiking up the last mile is super steep and rocky. I'm not usually afraid of heights but this one was a little stressful ;) Lots of bugs at the top, including butterflies :)

I've done this trail as a hike as well as a snowshoe. Both are great!

Best hike ever! Hard but worth it!

Loved the walks around the lake. The trail is well maintained and paved. I took my parents (in late 70s) there and they loved it as well. Picture perfect view!

Went over the weekend. A solid medium/beginner hike but it's hard to pass the groups of 10 we saw especially on the more narrow parts. It's heavily trafficked. Good views overall! IMPORTANT: you need a Recreation Pass (different from the Discovery Pass) in order to park in the lot. Otherwise you need $5. Cash only.

Epic. The views are well worth the effort.
