Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This delightful hike takes you to the base of one of the largest glaciers in the Olympics, where you can explore moraine heaps being colonized by pioneer plants and a large sparkling lake fed by glacier meltwater. Follow alongside a chattering river through old-growth groves graced with an understory of showy Pacifi c rhododendrons, and traverse lush meadows donned in brilliant wildfl owers on your way to the rock and ice below 7321-foot Mount Anderson."

2 miles, 3,400' elevation gain. Route to the lake is very steep, and very slippery during inclement weather. Snow free to the lake. Camp sites are snow free. Deep snow in the high country.
