Note: this trip was 7 miles on the dot. ET GPS screwed up (again). Had been meaning to hike this trail for some time now, but it's pretty short, so we always opted for something longer. We decided to finally hike this during the worst rain-storm of the year. Accuweather called for 4-10 inches of rain, and wow... were they accurate.
This entire trail was under water. Probably half of it was under 6 inches, and running rapidly. If was hard to tell the trail from the streams, and the waterfalls were tricky to cross in 2 places.
Under better circumstances, this looks to be a fairly easy, nice little hike. Ended up having lunch at the lake, trying to get some shelter from the large downed root ball of the tree at the lake. The winds were gusting to 60mph (according to King5 news that night) in the Cascades above North Bend. Figures. ;0)
Might go back in the snow - looks like it would be a blast.
