Mowich Lake Professional Review and Guide

"While the driving doesn’t offer much adventure, you will encounter great views of Mt. Rainier and, at the end, a sparkling, almost 123-acre lake at 4,929 feet elevation, set in a glacial cirque surrounded by high ridges and verdant forest.

Motor boats aren’t allowed on the lake—named with a Chinook word for deer or animal—which helps to preserve the area’s quiet, woodsy character. The first 3.2 miles are paved. The remainder is maintained gravel. The road is usually passable mid-July to October."
