The popular (25,000 annual visitors) route up to Snow Lake swarms with people during summer, and finding a place to hang out along the lake’s rocky beach is close to impossible on sunny weekends. Still, the lake sits within a gorgeous setting and should not be missed. An excursion in the fall to pick huckleberries is bound to find fewer people. Such is the popularity of the lake that even a rainy day sees plenty of visitors but at least no crowds. In spring, fields of wildflowers bloom at regular intervals along the trail—another reason for the lake’s popularity.
