Snoquera Falls Trail
by

Snoquera Falls has been one of the more problematic destinations for me in the entire state of Washington. I simply could never seem to catch it at the right time with weather and trail conditions. Fortunately, that all changed the day of this review. As for the trail itself, it's a nice moderate climb uphill, never reaching difficult or strenuous, it almost could be considered easy but because of some of the decently marked trail signs and possibly a wrong turn here or there, we'll go with moderate. The trail goes through moss covered trees a bit reminiscent of the Olympic Peninsula, though the hike didn't overwhelm me, there are much better hikes in the state. Snoquera Falls though is a different story! It is a much better waterfall than I anticipated and have seen while driving along Hwy 410. If you can catch it at its peak flow it is quite impressive and falls very similar to some of the mammoth falls in Yosemite National Park. The rocky cliffs remind me of Yosemite as well. The waterfall is the real attraction, the trail itself is kind of ho hum. Not bad but not incredibly exciting either. If you're an avid waterfall hunter, make it up to Snoquera Falls. If the actual hiking and/or the trail itself is your only goal, I would pass this up and choose some better hikes in the area. Snoquera Falls is definitely the best of the waterfalls you encounter before entering the Sunrise area of Mount Rainier National Park for sure!

On one of our first visits to the Walla Walla area, we asked about a local hike and we were directed here. It was January, so it was a little brisk, but sunny and we saw lots of other hikers and horsemen enjoying the day. Pleasant walk with views of the surrounding farmland and mountains in Walla Walla.

Hurricane Ridge Trail

The Hurricane Ridge trail starts off at the Hurricane Ridge visitors center, already with breathtaking views of The Brothers, and Mount Olympus. The trail winds down the ridge and then ends up at the hurricane hill. Which results in the same breathtaking view of the olympics. This trail is great for hiking and snow shoeing, and even mountain biking the spring or summer. I would recommend this trail to anyone interested in a moderately challenging hike, with end of a GREAT view.

Pinnacle Peak County Park: Cal Magnusson Trail

This is a great workout trail with close vicinity of nearby cities. The back trial on mud river road is easy with good views of Mt. Rainier. The front side has two trails with one on left is good for moderate workout and to the right is a very short strenuous steep trail known as the goat trail providing maximum results. Have fun!

A fun, yet strenuous hike to the top during a beautiful sunny spring day. The ascent starts right away and gets progressively strenuous to the top, but the hike is well worth it. Took the Talus Loop Trial on the way back down and was rewarded with a picturesque boulder field and peaceful forest as I wound down to the trailhead.

Got lucky as the morning weather was awesome, plenty of sun and a great trek along beautiful tree paths and the sun shown while we were at Greenwater Lake. Would be a great place to camp out.

Lake 22 (Twenty-two) Trail

Hiked this mid-April when the crowds were light, there was a fair bit of water on the trail, and snow was still visible past the 2 mile mark (3-5" compacted snow for the last 1/4 mile). An avalanche/landslide crossing some switchbacks created a pair of spots requiring a bit of a scramble, but nothing too harrying. Snow around the lake was a little too soft at mid-morning to make for an ideal circle around it, but the hike itself was absolutely beautiful. An amazing combination of old-growth, defined and well-established trail, and pre-season charm. There is a reason this is ranked one of the best waterfall/lake hikes in the area.

This trail is about a mile to the top and steep enough to get a work-out if you want one, especially on the west side of the mountain where there are some great photo ops.
