Surprise Lake and Glacier Lake

Seattle: Alpine Lakes Wilderness - Snoqualmie Pass - Central Cascades

Glacier Lake is located 5.2 miles from Surprise Creek Trailhead in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. The trail passes through some of the area's most intact old growth forests to a pair of lakes in a craggy cirque below Surprise and Spark Plug mountains, locally known as the Scenic Lakes. Travel is mild for the first 3 miles along Surprise Creek, then gains 800' in a mile up the headwall to Surprise Lake, and another 400' on the last mile to Glacier Lake.
