    Route Description for June Lake Trail

    June Lake Trail is a delightful jaunt for all ages, leading you through a green forest to a pretty lake with a waterfall behind it. This trail also has a good view of Mount Saint Helens. You can use this trail to continue to Chocolate Falls a bit further up if you’d like.

    The hike begins from the parking lot. Head north on the signed trail. The trail climbs quite gradually, meandering through the trees to the lake. You’ll cross the creek just before reaching June Lake. Snap some photos of the lake and falls before heading back.

    If you want to continue to Chocolate Falls, take Loowit Trail past the lake. Otherwise, retrace your steps to the parking lot.
