Olallie Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"There is a cost to popularity. Along with Talapus Lake, Olallie Lake has long been heavily overused and will probably continue to be so. The two lakes, beautifully situated in forested basins, are fairly close to the trailhead, relatively easy to reach, and provide both fishing and swimming opportunities.
The large sign announcing Pratt Lake Trail 1007 lists ten lakes and one fire look-out as destinations for this popular route. The wide and rocky trail begins past the information kiosk. Self-register for the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, and begin walking up the trail on a decent grade over long, loosely structured, meandering switchbacks. The sounds of I-90 filter through the thick forest of old trees. Cross numerous seasonal creeks in the first 0.5 mile."
