Hike - Lake Twentytwo - Trail

This will be a day Hike for photographing landscape and nature.           

This hike begins at 10:00 am : at the trailhead. Please arrive 15 minutes early to get ready for the hike.

Highlights of the trail.

Perched in a spectacular basin at the base of Mount Pilchuck's sheer northern face, sparkling Lake Twentytwo is a stunning sight. But there's more to this popular hike than the picturesque lake and its backdrop of waterfalls and avalanche chutes. For much of the way the well-constructed trail follows cascading Twentytwo Creek through an exemplary ancient forest of gargantuan cedars.

Additional Pictures for this hike, can be found in the Photos tab, in Some of my Hiking Photo's.
