Snoqualmie Lake is now an option for Taylor River. It is 17 miles with 2,100 feet elevation gain, so I would rate it moderate, although it is borderline strenuous.

Although this trip is open to any Mountaineer member over 18, it is part of the B3 Backpack program, and students will get credit for this trip. Non-B3 participants must have prior backpacking experience.
