  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi

Let's plan on meeting at the Brickyard Park and Ride in Bothell for a 7:00am carpool departure.  

Oh what a fabulous hike this is! We'll first head to Lake Stuart which will give us the needed mileage and gain but then onto Colchuck Lake and some fabulous views! We'll be looking straight at Aasgard Pass and Colchuck and Dragontail Peaks.  

I'm anticipating that things will be melted out by late June but please be prepared for snow on the trail!!!
