Dingford Creek to Myrtle Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"A day hike or backpack up Dingford Creek to Myrtle Lakes. Dingford Creek Trail climbs alongside its namesake creek to its source, the Myrtle Lakes, two of several quiet lakes set in a high basin above the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River in the shadow of Big Snow Mountain.

This is frequently done as a day hike, but the rough approach drive deters many from visiting this trail, making it a good choice if you want to get away from the crowds. There is a lot to explore here, including high lakes, vistas, and summits."

Long drive to get to the trailhead, but well worth it. Once there it is a nice long day hike with some great terrain and nice views. Lake at the top is nice , but a little buggy
The trail is well maintained (90% of the way) despite the heavy snow this year. The first part of this trail is not for the faint of heart - it starts off immediately uphill and is pretty rocky. Some neat views along the way. The lake at the top is beautiful (not stunning, but beautiful) and very peaceful. We went in August and it was a very hot weekend so the water in the lake warmed up a lot and we went for a nice warm swim in the lake. It was awesome! Oh, and a little secret: when you first get to the lake hang a left and go around to the west side. Thats where the best camping (and fishing is). Cheerio!
