Directions to Trailhead

Beaver Lake Trail is a quick, pretty hike in the Snoqualmie Pass area. This hike explores the ski area in the summertime (you can’t do this hike during the ski season) and is a great spot to enjoy the wildflowers in the summertime. It’s short, easy, and family-friendly.

Route Description for Beaver Lake Trail

Beaver Lake doesn’t take too long to complete, making it perfect for a short jaunt or if you’ve already done other hikes that day. Note that you can’t do this hike when the ski season is running, so plan to visit in the summertime. This hike is family-friendly.

Benign at the PCT trailhead, going straight through the first and second junctions. As you cross the stream, keep right. You’ll hug the stream to Beaver Lake, which is a small little pond suitable for a dip of the feet. The trail ends here and you can retrace your steps to the trailhead.

If you want to go a bit further, Lodge Lake is on the same trail a bit further, and is even prettier than Beaver Lake.

Getting to the Beaver Lake Trail Trailhead

The trailhead for Beaver Lake Trail is at the PCT trailhead west of the ski area.
