Pratt River Connector & CCC Trails

An easy hike in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness along the Middle Fork Snqoualmie River. These trails are primarily in the forest, following along the river most of the way with occasional mountain vistas on a clear day, with the Pratt River Connector Trail staying closer to the river than the CCC Trail. If you're looking for a long day hike or a backpacking trip, hike the Pratt River Trail all the way to Pratt Lake.
