Glacier Lake Trail

Glacier Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Climbing just 800 feet in 2 miles, this is one of the best trails in the South Cascades for families and kids. Not only is the going easy, but it’s also a pretty hike that ends at a beautiful alpine wilderness lake.

The trail follows Glacier Creek through old Douglas-fir and hemlock forest to a rock-filled basin around the cold, clear waters of Glacier Lake. Late-summer hikers find bushels of huckleberries growing along the route, and anglers can try for the big rainbow trout that lurk in the depths of the lake."
