Greenwater and Echo Lakes

We'll at least aim for Greenwater Lake about 2 miles in. From there, we'll decide to go further or turn around.

It may be muddy, see the link for recent trip reports.

National Forest Pass is required to park ($30 annual, $5 daily).

Try to share some gas money with drivers.

Driving Directions:

From Enumclaw drive east on State Route 410 (Chinook Pass Highway) to the small town of Greenwater. About 1 mile east of the Greenwater Fire Station (at the eastern end of the community), turn left (north) onto Greenwater River Road (Forest Road 70). Drive about 9 miles, crossing the Greenwater River, and turn right just past the bridge onto FR 7033. Drive up this narrow road about 0.5 mile to the large trailhead parking lot.

    Peter, it was great hiking with you! The weather was great, and thanks for buying the food afterwards!

    Peter, I'll be at the park & ride unless I hear otherwise from you. But if you know for sure whether or not you'll attend, let me know.

    This is a great hike and the lake makes for a very brisk dip. Living in Buckley makes it a good meetup for me, but I would like to see how wet the next few hours are going to be.

    What's the pace going to be and are small dogs allowed?

      I went on this hike a few years ago and it's not very much climbing or anything, if at all. The pace will be moderate at most. If needed, groups tend to split into sub-groups (faster & slower). Dogs should be OK, someone brought their dog last time I was there.
