Dege Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Forest Lake may be the most underappreciated lake within Mount Rainier National Park. You won’t find grand views. It’s not in a broad, sun-filled meadow. There is minimal camping space available and not a lot of potential for extending the relatively short mileage. Many hikers see those as negatives. Perfect! Because that means there’s a much higher likelihood that you and I can enjoy this wonderful route in relaxing solitude. What you will find is a gorgeous forest valley, a pristine woodland pond, lots of huckleberries (reason enough to visit!) and a wide assortment of wildlife."
