    it's a nice walk through some old growth forest with passing through series of water falls, we did our hike on November 8th, the last 1/2 of the hike was through icy and slippery trail, traction devices highly recommended if you want to enjoy the scenery instead of watching every step you take, the lake was beautiful

    started at 8:30 on Thursday. Maybe 5 cars in the parking lot. Trail is snow free except the last sections crossing open areas. Lots of area on trail to be social distant

    Started at 7 am, was the fifth car in the parking lot. While going uphill, crossed paths with 5 people in all. On the way back, crossed paths with 15 ppl. Still, not bad for a sunny day in Seattle when you can expect people going crazy. The trail is snow free first 30%, then intermittent snow for next 20% and persistent snow for the last 50% of the hike. The hike also crosses around half a dozen snowfields at the end which can be quite treacherous later in the day due to two reasons 1) steep drop offs on the right and 2) the snow is melting and there is a chance of postholing into the boulders below. Be aware of these hazards, possibly not take kids to this hike. Carry gps, waterproof boots, poles.

    Easy Access from Seattle. Perfect early season hike to get in shape. A mix of easy and moderate trails.

    Super crowded starting out, but as usual, I started late in the day when almost everyone else was hiking out and it was pretty quiet by the lake.

Annette Lake Trail No. 1019
Came back here to see what it was like in the fall/winter, and wow. So many waterfalls and streams that just weren't here in the summer. This place is awesome. Pretty cold at the lake, because there's really not a lot of protection. The trees are NOT dense around the lake, so the wind whips through if there's inclement weather (which there was). It was because of this hike that we went out and bought a Pocket Rocket and some small fire supplies). Beautiful hike.
