Let's hike to Blanca Lake this Sunday! The weather forecast looks perfect.
RT: 7.5 mile
Elevation gain: 3300'
High point: 4600'
This is a popular hike to a beautiful cobalt blue lake. The trail is relatively short, but steep. Be sure to have plenty of water and the 10 essentials. We'll meet at the Bothell Brickyard Park-n-ride at 8AM to carpool. A Northwest Forest Pass is required at the trailhead, where we should arrive around 9:30. We'll linger at the lake for a while and get back to the trailhead at about 3:30. I usually like to stop somewhere on the way back for food and drink, probably in Gold Bar.
