I-90 near Snoqualmie Pass. This trail is a good early-season alternative route to the high country of Alaska Lake/Alaska Mountain. We'll work on some general maintenance - brushing and tread work.
This trail is a good early-season alternative route to the high country of Alaska Lake/Alaska Mountain. Round trip to Alaska Lake is 11 miles, elevation gain 1600 feet, high point 4200 feet. When snow lingers, Gold Creek is an alternate route to Alaska Lake via the Pacific Crest Trail and Kendall Katwalk. It turns to a side trail in spots, circling around a beaver pond and crossing several creeks before splitting at four miles. The right fork is a dead end. The left fork goes one rough mile to Alaska Lake. Donít expect lots of company up here in the late summer or fall.
