"The Cascade Lake Trail is a level hike to the shores of Cascade Lake. The trail leads through large open meadows, stands of lodgepole pine trees, and across many streams and footbridges. Part of the hike follows alongside Cascade Creek. With wildflowers covering the meadows and the mountains in the distance, this is a magical and favorite hike." Read more

One of the nicest hikes in the park. The trail is flat and takes about 45 minutes to get back to the lake which has excellent fishing for Cutthroats and Grayling. You hike through some nice meadows. Make sure you bring water and raingear- ALWAYS !!! This is a great hike for a family. A great way to get a feel for the backcountry.
