Lake Twenty-two

OutAndBack • 5.4 mi • 0 ft

Lake Twenty-two has a well-justified reputation for being the most popular trail in the Stillaguamish Valley. It’s loved by all kinds of hikers, from families with small children through mountaineers, because of its accessibility. Because of this heavy use, the trail shows constant evidence of being upgraded with new switchbacks, water bars and boardwalks—especially around the lake perimeter. Clearly, what makes this hike exciting is the nice forest, high quality of boardwalks, and the ability to walk all the way around Lake Twenty-two and stare up the steep walls comprising the basin.
