This 1.8-mile loop trail with only 60 feet of elevation gain provides low-intensity recreation access in a scenic and special location in the Snoqualmie River Valley, just 40 minutes from Seattle. You will enjoy commanding views of the sweeping river meander and nearby summits of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area. The trail travels under a canopy of Douglas-fir, Western hemlock, red cedar, bigleaf maple, Sitka spruce, and alder. Groundcover includes salmonberry, Cascade-Oregon grape, and devil’s club. A parking lot, bathroom, and kiosks provide a great user experience.
