Greenwater, Echo & Lost Lakes


Day Hike - Greenwater & Echo Lakes

A strenuous hike at a moderate pace through an old growth forest river valley and to a scenic lake.

  • Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 14.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,900 ft
  • Pace: 2 mph

7:30 AM. Maple Valley Park & Ride. Or arrange in advance to meet at the Enumclaw ranger station.

This is a pretty trail for a fall hike. The Greenwater River is beautiful and the fall colors should be good. Rain is likely in November, hikers must be prepared. I have twice done this successfully on Veterans's Day, but last year snow came early and we had to change trails. There will be a backup plan.
