A nice hike to condition for summer hiking.   The water crossings and woods are beautiful, there is a nice view of Mt. Rainier at the lake overlook if we get a clear evening. We will hike at a moderate pace (approx. 2 - 2.5 mph), our goal is to finish in daylight. Bring a sack dinner. Note: The title says "(winter)" because we are doing the winter route from the Pratt Lake trail head, not from Talapus Lake as the summer route does.
