Melakwa Lake

Melakwa Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Crowds disappear once you are past Denny Creek’s waterfalls—the hordes thinning to a respectable number of serious hikers looking for an alpine lake experience. And what an experience!

The trail ?nally crests Hemlock Pass and descends moderately to Melakwa Lake, a broad alpine wonder with rocky slopes leading straight down into the crystal water. Those bright waters also re?ect the craggy peaks that ring the lake: most notably Chair and Kaleetan peaks."

A hot and sunny Sunday, and a busy trail... at least the first portion. The trail is in good condition. 4.5 miles to the lake, none of which is too steep or strenuous. The lakes are beautiful. The upper lake was less crowded and offered better views in my opinion.
