About mile 4, there is a clearing where you can see Island lake, and today, we had a BEAUTIFUL view of Mt. Rainier. Continue half mile more to the next y(left down to Island Lake, Right to Pratt and then Malewake-sp).
The next 1.5 miles to the lake is down hill and is some areas pretty steep in comparision to the first 4 miles. About 800ft down to the lake and half mile to the north end of the lake where we ate lunch.
Sat in the sun for 30 minutes, very little bugs and then hiked out. We came across maybe 8 other people on the trail today.
Time to lake: 3hrs, time back to car 3hrs. Total distance: 7miles(guesimate based on our time to and from)
Fall colors are starting to appear--its going to be a beautiful fall!
