Blue Lake is a deep blue lake set in a deep rocky cirque in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. Its alluring azure waters have huge chunks of ice bobbing on it until late into September. Two long ridges with jaw dropping views and often covered in wildflowers lead to the lake. This destination itinerary takse three days to explore this area and complete a loop that connects both of the ridges. One can also take an optional hike on the second day to an old fire lookout site with commanding views of Glacier Peak and other peaks up and down the Cascade crest.
