Puget Sound Area, I-90 at Exit 47. This is a great day hike, and without wilderness restrictions it is popular with large groups. The heavy use means heavy maintenance needs. We'll continue working on restoring the trail tread in places where it has eroded due to water and berm build-up (we'll install proper drainage).

This heavily used trail starts out in a 1950’s clear-cut, now covered with young trees, crosses the old Milwaukee Railroad tracks, following on the north side of the old railroad grade-turned Iron Horse Trail and many clearcuts. After this, it gets a bit more scenic as the trail climbs into virgin forest until the lakeshore of Annette Lake, set beneath Silver Peak at about three miles. This is a good day hike, and without wilderness restrictions it is popular with large groups. Camping is popular on weekends.

Driving directions:
From Seattle drive east on I-90 and take exit 47 (Asahel Curtis/Denny Creek). At the stop sign turn right (south); at the second stop sign, turn left. Drive 1/2 mile, then look for and park in the large paved parking area. The trail begins at the east end of the parking lot, next to a locked road gate. (Driving time from Seattle: approximately 1 hour.)
