This one-mile-long wheelchair-accessible trail takes you to beautiful Rainy Lake.
The trail starts at Rainy Pass Trailhead, milepost 158 on the North Cascade Highway (Hwy 20). Park at the parking lot on the west side of the highway and take the trail that starts at the south end of the parking lot.
At less than a half mile, the trail branches. The right trail climbs steeply towards mountains. Proceed straight instead. The one mile long trail is paved all the way to the viewpoint by the lake.
At the viewpoint you will see a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. The water is so clear you can see fish swimming in the lake.
