Length: 7.8 mi • Est. 3 h 50 m
SEASONAL ROAD CLOSURE: Roads leading to this trailhead are subject to seasonal closure. For more information, please visit https://usfs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=2f5351d70b0d4ed9b13d372e9d109fcb This trail is well-maintained, features a gentle but steady incline, and has a lot of varying scenery. The first portion of the trail can be muddy alongside waterfalls to get to the Annette Lake trailhead. Series of switchbacks through an old-growth forest make for a fun climb with beautiful views. The avalanche chutes are stunning and make sure to always check the surroundings and take a minute to listen before crossing. In the winter months, hikers suggest bringing special equipment such as spikes or waterproof shoes. It’s a beautiful winter wonderland with lots of snowpacks in certain parts of the season. The alpine lake can be almost entirely frozen over and very charming, with a mountain backdrop. Though snow on the trail is compacted by foot traffic, stick to it as snow is a couple of feet high on the sides most of the way and can be dangerous. The gradual elevation gain makes for a great hike through the Snoqualmie pass. Show more

Length: 6.8 mi • Est. 3 h 45 m
SEASONAL ROAD CLOSURE: Roads leading to this trailhead are subject to seasonal closure. For more information, please visit: https://usfs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=2f5351d70b0d4ed9b13d372e9d109fcb There is a $5 parking fee. Users may need to bring snowshoes to be able to navigate this trail in winter and spring conditions. The trail up to the summit of Bendera Mountain is a great escape from Seattle as it crests into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness of the Mount Baker Snoqualmie national forest. As you work your way up the mountainside make sure to stop and take in the gorgeous views of Mount Rainier. The last 1.5 miles of the trail gain 1800 feet by cutting straight up the mountain on a narrow path (2 feet wide in most places), the last 0.5 mile gaining 1000 feet. As difficult as this last leg is, the view at the top, and the feeling of accomplishment, is not to be denied. With all the elevation gain behind you, take a rest and snack break at the beautiful Mason Lake. There is backcountry camping and a toilet facility near Mason Creek.Show more

SEASONAL ROAD CLOSURE: Roads leading to this trailhead are subject to seasonal closure. For more information, please visit https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/okawen/recreation/recarea/?recid=83444&actid=62 During the summer, visitors can park very close to the pond. This pond may be filled in as part of a restoration project to restore the Bull Trout to Gold Creek. Accessibility: This asphalt, packed gravel, and wooden bridge trail is typically at least 3 feet wide. The slope, while usually gentle, is estimated to be very steep at the 0.5 mile mark. There is also a bridge at the 0.6 mile mark that may not be wheelchair accessible according to users. This is also marked with a waypoint. The most accessible portions of this trail are along the south, west, and north ends of the pond, avoiding the steep eastern side. There are two designated accessible car parking spots, 1 with an access aisle at the small paved trailhead lot (south end).Show more
