We are snow hiking to Annette Lake this is near North Bend. Micro Spikes will be needed. Hike with people of your skill level.
Our very own Mehmet will lead it.
A century-old favorite of Seattle hikers, the trail to Annette Lake is a perfect option in almost any weather condition. Dense trees offer shelter from sun or rain, and the climb from the trailhead that is shared with the Asahel Curtis Nature Trail is a solid workout, but not overwhelmingly strenuous. The pristine lake water is the perfect ending to a beautiful ascent.
Waterfalls, wildflowers, sheltering forests, mountain views and an alpine lake are offered on this well-maintained trail.
Snolquamie Pass gives Seattleites easy access to a vast winter wonderland. There are many options for tromping through the area’s forests of trees blanketed in white (the area receives an average of 400 inches of snow each year), including routes perfect for families looking for a gentle adventure to winter lovers looking to get in a good workout, and everyone in between.
This is a beautiful snow hike. . I think the hike will be closer to 7 miles round trip because This will be a SLOW easy hike. I am not going to call it beginning due to length, but the beginners have done great the last three hikes. So if you are experienced snow hiker I am going to need help with the novices in the hike.
