Snowshoeing Reflection and Louise Lakes (Intermediate)

  • Mar 9, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • Ravenna Park and Ride

Let’s head down to Mt. Rainier for an intermediate snowshoe. The plan is to start at the Narada Falls view area parking lot, make our way up to Reflection and Louise Lake and then head up to Mazama ridge for great views. Note the elevation gain.

DETAILS: It is a 7 mile round trip, considered more difficult with an elevation gain of 560 feet.  Highest point is 6100

Need at least 3 people to make this meetup happen.

My cell# is[masked]

IMPORTANT: Will cancel trip short notice when avalanche rating is high

"This trail stays right along the edge of timber line, making it one of the most spectacular routes for snowshoers in Mount Rainier National Park. The trail provides a wonderful experience in a winter forest, the chance to visit a frozen alpine lake, and subalpine meadows in which to play and soak up the scenery."

    I ended up getting an extra 1.5 hours of full-pack hiking trying to get from the Evergreen bus stop to the south kirkland P&R. I may have had a cop tailing me while I was in BillG's neighborhood :)

      Robert and Dave W,There is the South Kirkland P&R at 108th Ave NE off 520. I have a fast pass and could drive us to Ravena but don't think I want to drive all the way to Rainier. My driver's side airbag is broken. Took it in today and though it was going to be fixed today but they needed to order the part.

      March 8, 2013

    • Robert M.

      We could meet you there at 7:40 tomorrow. I'll send you an email with my phone number if you decide to do that. If I drive, we should meet a little earlier as I refuse to pay the toll (and don't have a pass)

      March 8, 2013

  • wadood

    I can take 3-4 people in my car from ravena

    March 8, 2013

    • Ilene J

      I'll take another spot. I don't have the parking permit.

      March 8, 2013

    • wadood

      Sure btw will do first come basis so we keep filling as people come in to avoid any last minute cancellation. make sense.. also i think will have enough cars to ride for sure..

      March 8, 2013

  • Robc

    Anyone have a general estimation what time we will return back in Seattle?

    March 8, 2013

    Hi, Does anyone have an extra pair of snowshoes I could borrow?

    March 6, 2013

    • wadood

      In case if you planning to buy sporting goods, REI have good once. Also REI stores rent them for a low cost..

      March 6, 2013

    Hi everyone, do I need to rent my own snowshoes or are there some to borrow? Also, didn't know if there was someone I could catch a ride with. I'm on the Eastside but can drive to meet (I'm in a little Miata, not appropriate for snow). Thanks!

    March 6, 2013

    February 21, 2013

    • Gabriele P

      It is a 200 mile, approx. 5 hr long round trip

      February 22, 2013

  • Gabriele P

    The last time I did trip with this distance, we came home about 9pm. And that included dinner afterward.
    I don't know if anyone else would like to come home earlier with whom you could ride back home.
