Lake Easton

A 5-mile network of trails for easy/beginner cross-country skiing with around 50 feet of elevation gain near Snoqualmie Pass. Ski trail grooming starts later in the season. Great for kids and families. Take the groomed Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail (formerly John Wayne Trail) for excellent views of Lake Easton.
