Be Aware Of
Snow on trail
Avalanche danger
There is a well-groomed, flat loop for those who want some snow and sledding easily reached from Seattle without the hassle of elevation change. Next, the push up to Source Lake is well trodden. The final crawl up to the ridge goes through so many temperature zones that at times it is slushy, then icy, then crusty, then fluffy. Stay as far to the right as you can and avoid the obvious avalanche tracks. Views at the top were spectacular. I opted against heading down to the lake this time. Snow Lake is covered in snow and many (brave) snowshoers have been walking around it.

Lewis River Trail (Apr 10)

Lewis River Trail

South Cascades

We're at the cusp of waterfall season! With five waterfalls in a 7-mile roundtrip, this Lewis River hike is one to keep on your April-June to-do list. If you're hiking with creaky knees or kiddos, take in the magnificent, close-in Lower Lewis River Falls. If you want a longer hike with some ups and downs, venture all the way to Taidnapum Falls, 3.5 miles in.
