We will meet at the trailhead at 8:30am.

Exit 54, 2 miles east of the Snoqualmie Pass summit. Exit I-90, turn north, crossing under the freeway. A few hundred feet north of the highway interchange, turn right into Gold Creek Sno-Park, which follows Forest Road 4832 and drive east parallel to the freeway for 1 mile. Forest Road 142 accesses the Gold Creek Pond trailhead, but is not plowed in winter. Park along Forest Road 4832 (Sno-Park permit required) and hike the 0.3 mile road to the turnoff to the Gold Creek Pond parking area.

This is an easy beautiful snowshoe.  We will snowshoe around Gold Creek Pond and the venture to a second unnamed pond where we will have some lunch.  Total trip will be around 5.18 miles.

Gold Creek Sno-Park can be very busy and congested on weekends and holidays. The road is narrow and often icy.

A Sno-park permit is required for this trip.

Raven (a dog) will be hiking with the group, please be comfortable hiking with dogs before signing up for this hike.
