Lake Lacrosse - O Neil Pass

Lake Lacrosse - O Neil Pass is a strenuous backpack of 46 miles with 4,000 feet of gain.

100 Classic Hikes in Washington says Lake La Crosse is “the most splendid alpine lake in the Olympic,” which we will reach via “the 24-carat Classic [route] on one of the most spectacular trails in the National Park, traversing ridges high about the Enchanted Valley of the Quinault, in magnificent views and flower fields.” The challenging access route also keeps away the crowds.
