Early morning would afford better pictures and parking on weekends. One mile easy paved path around the lake, though road in was unpaved and full of potholes. Vault toilet. Visitors used Northwest...

Beautiful! Visited in September.the trail around the pond is easy and nice.water is crystal clear. Great place to spend family time in the summer and winter.
This place is amazing! Not overly crowded and the sun was out so it wasn’t super cold. We got to see snow everywhere! The lake was beautiful. There are toilets at the entrance of the trail and parking spots was not hard to find for us. Beware of lots of potholes though! Also with the snow, the two way traffic has turned to just one way so you’ll have to yield to cars coming towards you as you get closer to the parking lot. We will definitely return!!!
Beautiful view in the winter. Easy trail, suitable for family plan that has Kids, around 1.5miles long. Make sure you bring snow shoes, gloves and beanies.
Beautiful view! The water is crystal clear! There's an area you can picnic/bbq here
Super fun day hike!! It’s almost exactly 1 hour from Seattle - roads were clear and easy to get to. Once you pull off exit 54 there are two trailheads, one next to exit and one down the road about 1/4 mile which is where we went. There is NO parking lot but you can park on the side of road, and make sure to get a Sno-Park Pass!!! We saw people giving out tickets on the way back to our cars, so you definitely need one. We got our pass at REI the night before since there is no place to get one at the trailhead. My Apple Watch tracked exactly 3.08 miles from where we parked, 2 hours 14 minutes, and 100ft elevation gain, so this hike is pretty much completely flat. We went on 1/15/23 and there was a good 4’ of snow at least! Everything was pretty well packed on the trail so we only used our micro spikes which worked out fine, but our friends (and most people) had snowshoes on and loved it! We saw some XC skiers as well. Once you walk down the trail you get to another trailhead which then takes you to the lake/pond! There’s a trail all the way around the lake but it’s a bit hard to find. If you go to the LEFT, it’s just inside the trees right off the shore. The water was about 90% frozen over and there were a bunch of footprints from people that walked across to the island, but we didn’t want to try that… The views of the mountains are were gorgeous though! It started rain/snowing about halfway through so I’d definitely recommend a waterproof jacket with some layers if not a snow jacket. No need for super heavy duty gear - it was cold but bearable with just 2 pairs of leggings and a jacket on cause you’ll get a good warm workout just from walking around. There were a TON of people with dogs, so if you bring yours keep in mind the entire trail is covered with snow/ice, they’re feet might get chilly. If you’re looking for a fun day hike close to Seattle or want to get some use out of your snowshoes, this is definitely the place! All flat, no tough hills, but still challenging and a decent workout. We went early in the morning around 9am and by the time we left it was getting pretty busy. Hope this review helps, have fun!!
