Happy Lake Professional Review and Guide

"You may have a hard time staying jovial on your way to Happy Lake. Reaching this subalpine lake requires a stiff climb up a high dry ridge. But once you crest Happy Lake Ridge, a smile is sure to come to your sweaty face.

Open forest, quiet meadows, and heather parklands grace the way. Enjoy breathtaking views, too, of the sweeping Elwha Valley and the impressive Bailey Range.

Dogs are prohibited."
