The route begins by heading to Source Lake but pushes on past that easy-to-reach day-hiking destination and climbs steeply to crest the saddle separating Snow Lake from the South Fork Snoqualmie River drainage. This makes for a rigorous outing but one well worth the effort—especially for those seeking a winter camping destination.

This was an excellent first snowhoe outing of the season, as the first big storm of '05 to hit the Cascades has moved through. I was able to use my snowshoes all the way up the trail, starting at the trailhead, without any problems. There is plenty of opportunity to take advantage of the trail now, as not too many people are on it yet. The lake is beautiful - not frozen over, however.
