Snowshoeing to Kendall Peak Lakes

Allison and I tried snowshoeing for the first time on the Kendall Peak Lake Trail this weekend. The start of the trail was only 5 minutes past the primary ski area at Snoqualmie Summit (50 minutes east of Bellevue). With an elevation gain of just over 2,100 feet (making the peak of the climb close to 4,600 feet), we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Sun, a light breeze and temperatures ranging from 30-45 degrees. The 8.5 mile round trip had multiple “Kodak Moments”, no step inclines, lots of resting spots and only a modest number on trail. Dogs on leashes and children on sleds are okay too. A $20 Snowpark Pass is required.
This trail will be equally beautiful in the summer when there is no snow and we have already added it to our list for next year.
This winter wonderful is just another reason Allison and I love living in the Northwest.
