Directions to Trailhead

Hyak Creek Trail is an easy 3.1 km trail in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. This lightly trafficked trail is used most for snowshoeing as the trail is not very well-defined in the summertime. You could still find your way to the lake, but you’d be making your way through the foliage or using another nearby path.

In the winter, this is a nice trip with a pretty viewpoint.

Route Description for Hyak Creek Trail

Hyak Creek Trail is a lightly trafficked route to a small lake that is mostly used in the wintertime by snowshoers. The trail beside this one, Nordic Pass Trail, is a nice alternative if you’re here in the summertime and the route is similarly easy to follow, although it starts just a bit further up the road.

Begin from the parking area. You’ll follow the creek the entire way, and the trail is a straight shot to the lake, so there are no routefinding challenges to worry about. Continue along the creek until you reach little Hyak Lake.

After revelling in the views, retrace your steps back.
