Snow Lake Trail

Snow Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Snow Lake is one of the most popular hikes in the Snoqualmie Pass area. The trail, though, is long and steep for children and has endured erosion from the constant stream of hikers. My own kids rebelled at backpacking it when they were eight, nine, and ten, and we bivouacked along the way.

But the next day, seeing the lake, they wished they’d kept going and camped there; we returned to do so several times. The rugged and beautiful setting—tall cliffs on one side and vast valley on the other—make it memorable for hikers of all ages."

A brilliant hike on a cool, sunny day!! Not many hikers this time a year but enough to make you feel comfortable in their company when hiking solo. The lake was all it was remarked to be and more!! Thanks so much for!!
Great hike! It was a beautiful in the 80’s Saturday Sept 2nd summer day and the lake and views were simply gorgeous. The fair amount of folks with & without dogs on leash kept things interesting along the trail. This was my siggy's initiation hike & he deemed hiking a good pre ski season work out. It took us 2 hours to make the trek to Snow Lake and 1.5 hours out. We ate our lunch and lingered by the lake's edge, dangling tired feet in the crisp, cold water. Wild blueberries were in abundance in the area's down by the lake. We were glad to have packed plenty of water as the hot, dry day warranted the consumption of lots of water. All in all a great first hike :)
Far too many people and dogs for an enjoyable day in the mountains.
Not too difficult and a lot of bang for your buck.
