Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Before setting off for this aquatic gem perched high in an open cirque below 6838-foot Stevens Peak, a bit of less-thanideal terrain must be negotiated. As of 2004 a large logging operation has been in progress on the lower reaches of this hike, in essence obliterating the lower one-third of the trail. The trail is, however, still open; you just need to walk the new skid road to access it. You’ll want to check when logging is occurring (or completed).

The hike begins on what will be a road for some time. Pass the gate and follow this road as it angles to the north and then continues on a mostly southern route, parallel to Willow Creek. A few signs on remaining trees point the way. At the end of the newly cut area (about 1 mile from the trailhead), follow the skid road that climbs away from the creek at about a 45-degree angle. Find the trail, an old road leading steeply up the forested valley. Soon the route resembles a bona fide trail and after 0.5 mile of steep going delivers you into a beautiful open area kept tree-free by avalanches."
