Surprise and Glacier Lakes Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This classic westside hike is accessible rain or shine. Even on a cold, drippy day, when the mountaintops are shrouded in mist, the forest takes on a mystical feel, with its
moss-covered rocks, mushroom-speckled trees, and crystal-clear creek.
Once you have ascended from the valley, you are rewarded with two splendid alpine lakes with great shoreline campsites. If you head out on a weekend, be prepared to share these
gems with others—their proximity to Seattle makes them a hot destination."
