The path to Pratt Lake was once a braided super highway, at times more than 10 feet wide. Hardly the stuff of wilderness. But Washington Trails Association (WTA) volunteers stepped in and rebuilt the trail. Not only did they rebuild the tread to channel all hikers onto the proper path, they decommissioned all the unauthorized secondary trails, creating a new single track worthy of a pristine wild area. Hikers can now stroll easily up this picturesque trail to the pretty Pratt Lake basin.

Hiked up Talapus/Olallie trail and camped at Olallie. Hiked up about a mile on Pratt trail above Olallie then turned around and went out on Pratt to I-90--it was in great condition, cool on a hot day.
