Green Lakes and Soda Creek is one of the classic hikes of the high Cascades. The total distance is around 11 miles with over 1000 feet of ascent. Is is an intermediate hike. We checked out the snow conditions on Saturday (3 July). There is still a lot of snow on the trail. It should have mostly cleared by the 17th but you should still be prepared to cross some big snowfields. Meet at Starbucks on Century Drive at 8am. Drivers need a forest pass.
