I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass. This is a popular access point for the Pacific Crest Trail. We'll work on maintaining the first couple miles of this trail as it heads south from Snoqualmie Pass. We'll address annual maintenance needs, such as brushing and drainage, and work to re-crown a turnpike structure above Beaver Lake.
This portion of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail heads south from Snoqualmie Pass. It crosses open ski slopes before cresting the ridge and dropping into the forest. In 2.0 miles the trail arrives at Lodge Lake, a surprisingly peaceful area, despite its close proximity to the ski area and highway. Past the lake the trail meanders through alternating timbered and clear-cut sections towards Olallie Meadow and through Windy Pass into the Wenatchee National Forest and beyond. The open terrain and occasional clear-cuts allow for panoramic views of Mt. Rainier and the South Cascades.
