This portion of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail heads south from Snoqualmie Pass. Cross open ski slopes before cresting the ridge and dropping into the forest. In two miles arrive at Lodge Lake, a surprisingly peaceful area, despite its close proximity to the ski area and highway.
Past the lake meander through alternating timbered and clear-cut sections towards Olallie Meadow and through Windy Pass into the Wenatchee National Forest and beyond. The open terrain and occasional clear-cuts allow for panoramic views of Mt. Rainier and the South Cascades.
