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.
