Hiking Twin Lakes

Hike along the Lake Lillian trail to two sparkling lakes, great as both a destination for your hike or as a part of a longer hike to Lake Lillian. Either way, Twin Lakes is the perfect spot for lunch or some quiet time. 

This hike can also be paired with a visit to Lake Margaret, the turnoff to which is about 2 miles in from the trailhead, or the summit of Mount Margaret, the turnoff to which is about 2.3 miles in.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

Exit I-90 at Hyak exit 54. If you are coming from Seattle, turn left at the stop sign at the end of the ramp. Proceed under the highway and continue a short distance to a stop sign. Reset your odometer here and turn right onto Gold Creek Road.

This road will parallel the highway for a while before turning up into the hills (road called FS 4832, Rocky Run Rd). At 2.5 miles it will turn to dirt. At 3.8 miles there will be a left turn; DO NOT TAKE IT. At 3.9 miles take the left fork. At 4.3 miles you will reach the parking lot on your left. The trail begins a hundred yards or so up on the left.
