This is a trip for the whole family. Load up the kids, the dog, and even the grandparents for this easy walk in the pristine Northwest forest. The elevation gain is minimal, the scenery is pretty, and the lake at the end of the hike offers a perfect swimming experience. While many wilderness lakes stay ice cold throughout the summer, Sand Lake is just shallow enough for the sun to warm it to a comfortable temperature for cooling off during a hot summer hike. The smooth, sandy bottom is a comfort to boot-tired feet, too.
