Talapus Lake Trail

Talapus Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Easy access, a short trail, camping, fishing, and proximity to other woodland lakes are the reasons Talapus is one of the most popular lakes in the greater Snoqualmie Pass area. The trail continues on from Talapus to Olallie and numerous other lowland lakes.

At 1¾ miles, the trail levels and enters the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, where you will see enormous old-growth cedars. Watch for wild lily-of-the-valley and the tiny pink bells of twinflower lining the trail."

This is a really nice, well maintained trail that is pretty doable for all skill levels. My dog and I did this hike-- the lake is cold, beautiful and refreshing. If you have time hike a bit further to Ollalie Lake.

Very nice hike. Not difficult. But on the lake was crowded (of course) and it was difficult to get to the water. The lake is very beautiful

Great hike for kids. Definitely extend the hike to Lake Olallie, especially if you are considering pitching a tent.

Great Hike for Kids or Beginners. The leader of our cub scout troop's daughter hiked up in flip flops, probably not the best idea but she's only 3. Ollalie lake is a prettier lake if you can make the next .8 miles.
