Forget the “Katwalk” name—it’s inappropriate. Cats don’t belong on trails, even precarious perches such as this. No, like the rest of the 2600- mile Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), which runs from Mexico to Canada, this section is purely a dog’s trail. Who wants to hike in old clearcuts? When they are packed with huckleberries, I do! Besides, the old clearcuts found on the lower portion of this route peter out quickly as you climb the ridge and enter old stands of forest before cresting the ridge and dropping into the picturesque lake basins. To get there, from Snoqualmie Pass drive east on Interstate 90 to exit 54 (Hyak) and turn left (north) at the bottom of the exit ramp.
