The bridge is still out so I opted to bike the road walk which paid off when I got back to the trailhead and was able to ride downhill for 4 miles back to the vehicle. The road walk has a stream crossing that would have been annoying without a bike as well. The trail its self was well maintained up to the lake and had beautiful views once you get there. Be prepared for a chilling creek crossing if you plan to get to Bear, Deer, and Snoqualmie lakes. The crowd was minimal, mainly just backpackers on the trail. A permit is required for backpackers but be prepared for there not to be permits at the trailhead. There were lots of shelf fungi!
