Snoqualmie Pass North to Ridge and Gravel Lakes
||7.5 mi (one-way)
||Linear - One Way
I-90 to exit #52. Turn north under the interstate. Take the first immediate right into the Pacific Crest Trail #2000N parking lot. A stock loading lot is located to the left. The road continues straight to the general hiking access and parking lot.
This is one of the most beautiful and most crowded sections of the 2,620-mile long Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. The trail ascends through forest and passes the Commonwealth Basin Trail at 2.75 miles. Switchbacks continue up around Kendall Ridge to the Kendall Katwalk, a section of blasted-out solid granite. This section is treacherous when snow-covered or icy. The Katwalk (at 5.5 miles) is a good turnaround point for day hikers. Backpackers can continue along heather meadows to the saddle between tiny Ridge and Gravel Lakes where the first campsites can be found. At this point (7.5 miles) the trail leaves the district and continues north to Stevens Pass and beyond.
