Wildflowers blooming
Be Aware Of
Blowdowns
Water on trail
 Got to the trailhead around 10:30; there were 3 other cars there. The trail up is in good condition (though you can tell it's heavily used), a couple of blowdowns and creek crossings that are easily navigated. Wildflowers blooming along the trail, including -to my delight- glacier lillies. Some snow at the top, but didn't have any problems crossing in my trail runners. The snow was getting pretty soft in places, some postholing seen. The lake was beautiful, a waterfall on the far side. Nice spots to have some lunch. Crossing the logs, I stopped to watch some trout swimming below. Saw a couple of families on their way up as I headed down, and the lot was 1/2 full by the time I got back (1:30pm).

Overall, a nice hike for a weekday.

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.
