This is a close-in backpacking option in the Snoqualmie National Forest & Alpine Lakes Wilderness, off exit 34, I-90. Middle Fork Road approach road is poor quality. Special features of this backpack include waterfall and alpine lake viewings and mossy old-growth forest, with much of the trail with eyesight or earshot of flowing waters. A couple different Campsites are between 4.5-5.5 miles from the trailhead. There is an opportunity to optionally hike up to Snoqualmie Lake (an additional 6-8 mile, 1,400 ft. of elevation, roundtrip) after setting up camp. On way out there is an option to temporarily stash backpacks and take a 2.6 mile, 1200 ft vertical side-trip to Marten Lake.

9-11 mile roundtrip; 700 feet total elevation gain, pace 1.5 MPH
