Beautiful hike. Pretty quick hike, but you’ll definitely get a good workout in. Amazing view from the top. Lots of smoke because of wildfires at this time.

The water was absolutely amazing and cold! The views were good too. We went to the lookout point of snow lake first, then snow lake, which took about 1.5 hours. The hike down took about 1 hour. Swimming in snow lake was really nice, not crowded at all, would recommend, great life experience to swim in an alpine lake.

Beautiful hike, crowded at 7am. Walked it with our cat, don’t forget your discovery pass! There is also a pull off on the road immediately before the trail parking lot (if coming west from Seattle) that saves you about a mile of hiking.

walked the tunnel early in the morning with my son and two dogs, not to much traffic in the tunnel until we came back. it's a nice walk, remember a jacket and a good flashlight or headlamp. the tunnel is really dark. there was a nice place to sit and relax or have a snack before continuing the hike to twin falls.

Easy with kids! Wish we had packed a picnic!

Phenomenal hike, definitely harder than I thought it would be but totally worth it. Snow Lake was colder but it felt so good to swim in such a clean lake :) View from the top before heading down to the lake is so worth it!!!

Great trail to the waterfall. Show up early and it's not bad.

Much more enjoyable than the zoo at Snoqualmie Falls.

Loved it. The stairs were rough but after that, it was amazing. The difference in views around each corner was breathtaking. Then of course the payoff at the end. ♥️

Beautiful hike, we love it

Beautiful hike. Gradual elevation the whole way through. It really is 7.4 miles to the lakes for almost exactly 15 mile hike round trip. Totally worth it.

It was harder than i thought, but the view was worth it. Wear your hiking shoes, u wont regret it. We started the trail at 7am, so it was not crowded.

The tunnel is 2.3 miles of dark, cold and dripping. It was crazy crowded with hiker/walkers, bikers of all types. I rate it easy as long as you can walk 5 miles. Be careful, some little kids were not paying attention an nearly go hit in the dark. Some others had no light or it died. So have a back up. Light jacket in summer while in tunnel is a good idea. If you park at the Hyat lot at east tunnel entrance you need a discovery pass. There is day pass envelopes there and rest rooms. I am

A hard and rewarding hike. The view at the top was amazing. Took us about 2 hours to get to the peak but was worth it at the end. Make sure you bring an ample amount of water as there are some steep inclines.

Snow Lake is beautiful, lots of people on the trail. Not difficult so a lot of day hikers. Beautiful campsites and quiet at night.

paved, great for strollers and kids

worth the trip down to the lake once you've "gotten to the top".

Great hike. Gorgeous views!!

Easy hike, tons of places to take the kids to play in the water. Awesome waterfall. Definitely a must see!

I started @ the Pratt Lake TH on Sunday August 12TH around 9 AM. The trail was in great condition all the way up to Lower Tuscohatchie Lake. After the lake there was a few blown down trees and some scrub over growth on the trail leading up to Melakwa Lake. Over all, not bad trail conditions. I eventually made my way down to Denny Creek and my GPS showed 16.5 miles. Of course there was the walk back to the Pratt Lake / Granite Mountain TH parking lot on forest road 5800. My GPS watch showed a total of 19.72 miles in 8 hours 50 minutes. I arrived back to my truck around 6PM. I only stopped for a 5 minute break, the occasional picture and a 10 minute lunch break at Melakwa Lake. The trail is rated difficult and I would agree. There wasn’t really any mosquitos or bugs on the trail. If you want to test your hiking endurance, seek solitude or want views of beautiful lakes, mountains and forests, this is the hike for you.

Great day hike! For sure harder than I thought it would be. The view is worth it for sure!

I hiked southbound July 13th in two days. Started at 6 a.m. and set up camp at Deep Lake around 6 p.m. Decided last minute to take the Goldmyer Alternate route and finished up at Alpental late in the evening in day 2.

I do this Section a couple of times each year and am amazed at the great condition of the trail. A great big thank you to all those volunteers that do the hard work keeping the PCT safe and in good condition.

This was the earliest I have done this section and the snow was present in many areas, but very manageable. I also tend to camp at Deep Lake each time out and tolerate the mosquitoes. Lot’s of bug spray and am thinking of passing by next time to avoid them.

Great couple of days of solitude. Just what I needed.

Beautiful hike, it was very smokey on 8/14 so the views could be much improved on a clear day but still a great hike. The hike itself is moderate difficulty, I think what may make it harder is the length.

Went up this past weekend; although it was cloudy the panoramic of the Cascades was still stunning! A favorite for sure. Quite a bit of bugs so bring some bug spray.

Totally too easy of a “hike” but very beautiful with the river and falls!

Beautiful Loved it

Great hike. Beautiful views.

Easy

Go to BelSquare if you want to be around this many people. Beautiful lake. Lots of bugs. Very scenic trail.

Hike is beautiful, but it is so packed and literally ZERO trail etiquette. Lots of loud people on the trail. Because of the amount of people we turned off snow lake and went up to another small lake. Couldn’t get down to the water but had beautiful views and ended up being a 5 mile in and out hike. Won’t do it again but it is very beautiful.

Great views, not too many people, very hot, bring lot's of water. Bugs
