    Great hike with moderate vertical, nice creek and high ridge-line with great views.

    Got to trailhead about 8 and still there was parking. Walked up and around the lake - trail is wet and snow patches near the trail on the lake but trail is completely snow free. Beautiful waterfalls coming off the Pilchuck face.

    a really nice hike. My hike was 9.7 miles out and back, with 1500 feet of ascent. The trail did have a few rough spots to climb around but overall it was clear and well marked. The end of the hike drops you off at the rivers edge with several camping spots available with well arranged fire pit locations and lots of dead wood to use. THE absolute worst part of the hike was the three mile drive from the highway to the trail head... Endless potholes that endlessly bottomed out my Jeep. And as most forest roads, there is very few spots to pass a car going the opposite direction. Oh and did I mention the millions of mosquitoes? It is still a worthy hike.

    Two friends and I just hiked Lake Twentytwo for the first time since I was a child. My mom has quoted my 6 year old self exclaiming how beautiful the hike was many times over the last 20-something years, so my expectations were set pretty high! At the top, I wasn't disappointed, though I was surprised my child-self was able to make it up those rocky sections so many years ago. I did this hike because 1) I love alpine lakes 2) I had my little puppy in tow, so didn't want anything too difficult for her and 3) I didn't want to drive too far. At the top, we were pleasantly surprised with how few mosquitos there were (I forgot bug spray), and had a fantastic swim that wasn't as cold as I was anticipating. We had a nice rock to jump into the water all to ourselves. And for such a popular hike (and a pretty full parking lot for a Friday afternoon), I was also surprised that the lakeshore wasn't more crowded. Too bad there's no camping up there, but glad they're able to protect such a gorgeous lake!
