I-90 to exit #52. Turn south after exiting the highway. Take the first right and then the next left into the upper parking lot. The trailhead is located at the west end of the gravel lot.
This trail may also be accessed via Forest Service Road #9070 to Windy Pass/Olallie Meadow by taking exit #54.
This portion of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail heads south from Snoqualmie Pass. It crosses open ski slopes before cresting the ridge and dropping into the forest. In 2.0 miles the trail arrives at Lodge Lake, a surprisingly peaceful area, despite its close proximity to the ski area and highway. Past the lake the trail meanders through alternating timbered and clear-cut sections towards Olallie Meadow and through Windy Pass into the Wenatchee National Forest and beyond. The open terrain and occasional clear-cuts allow for panoramic views of Mt. Rainier and the South Cascades.
