We started at 10:30 and got up to the Kendall Katwalk by 1:30. Stopped for pictures and snacks along the way. Two of my friends got stung by yellow jackets multiple times when they wandered off the trail to take a break. They must have gotten too close to the nest.

The Katwalk itself wasn't all that impressive given the great views throughout the entire trail. Look for the distinctive Red Mountain on the left as you ascend the trail.

After lunch, we kept going to Gravel Lake and Ridge Lake, which is another two miles further. Walking even a bit further, we got a great view of Alaska Lake down below. At 4pm, we started our way down and got back to the cars by 7:30pm, right before sun down. Altogether, we hiked for about 15 miles.

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
