Olallie Meadow–Twin Lakes Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"It’s hard to believe sometimes that anything special could be found in a forest so close to the large metropolitan area of Seattle and greater Puget Sound, a major ski resort, and an interstate highway.
Ollalie Meadow, with its diverse displays of wildflowers, demonstrates the value of keeping an open mind on that subject. And so does the loop trail to Twin Lakes, which should more properly be called “The Greater Snoqualmie Huckleberry Garden” since the entire route is one long huckleberry patch. During the fall you can easily pick your fill from the four species of Vaccinium ssp. that line the trail. If you’re here during autumn, it’s highly likely you won’t get much hiking done, as you’ll easily be overwhelmed by all the berry- picking possibilities. Buck up, though! The entire Twin Lakes loop trail is one long huckleberry patch that make the pickings seem endless."
