Lake Ann Trail

Lake Ann Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Shuksan is the star on this glorious hike. Traverse forest and meadow, bogs and talus, all while anticipating the hidden gem of Lake Ann. And once she’s revealed—dark blue-green waters oft-ringed in snow—her charm is enhanced hundredfold by the awesome backdrop of craggy, glacier-clad, 9127-foot Shuksan hovering above."

I hiked this with my wife, 12yo daughter and 3yo son. We got to the trail a bit late and left around 3pm. We passed quite a few people, most on their way back. The scenery was stunning and the glacier's intemidating. It was an easy hike with very little ice patches to traverse. The lake and view of the Shukson glacier was worth the trip. The trail starts up high and drops about 400 ft before a gradual decline of another 500 feet. Then there is a large uphill climb of about 700 feet to crest the saddle then a short downhill to Lake Ann. Great hike and great time. The only draw back was the numerous people on the trail. Go on a weekday if you can.
