Lake Dorothy Professional Review and Guide

"Hike this moderate 3- to 7-mile out-and-back day hike or backpack to Lake Dorothy, one of Washington’s largest backcountry lakes, in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.

You follow a rushing stream to the lake, which offers good camping. Beyond the lake you can hike to more lakes, and even descend into the scenic Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River."

Hiked into Lake Dorothy and beyond. The hike was, as usual, very scenic. The number of day hikers was fairly high. But that was mainly to Dorothy. We hiked on past to Bear and then Deer Lake - Set up camp at Deer. The gnats were very heavy by the Lakes. We hiked on up to Snoqualmie Lake and it was a fairly steep climb, but without packs it wasn't too bad. We fished at Snoqualmie and one of our party pulled in 3 undersized fish (7,8,8). I got 3-4 bights. The seeting of all the lakes is great - -if we could just figure out what to do with those pesky gnats!

This trail was well maintained and beautiful. It was a bit of a climb approaching Lake Dorothy, especially for those of us that need to do a lot more hiking. The lake is beautiful, we went for a quick swim. My wife and I turned around here and went back down, but our friends continued on and backpacked in the area. Parking was easy, directions were good, all-in-all a great day.
