Snow on trail
Decided to try this hike after seeing it as a recommended winter hike from WTA. The trail had ice and snow in a lot of places but was in great condition other than that. It leads you down by the river at times which gives you nice views of the surrounding peaks. It also takes you away from the river and into the forest. I didn't see anyone else out so I had the whole thing to myself.

As mentioned in the hike description and on other reports, the forest road is in terrible condition. It took me over an hour to get to the trailhead after I got off I-90. Be prepared to drive 10 mph or less.

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.
