Snoqualmie Pass

The I-90 Corridor between Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass contains a great many peaks and even more hiking trails. Despite their close proximity to each other, each trail is indeed unique in its own way.

These hikes have been organized in an East to West order (mostly). Click on the trail name to read the report and view trip photos.

Lake Keechelus
Located just east of Snoqualmie Pass is a huge man made lake. In the summer it's beautiful (if you ignore all those stumps) but in the winter it's some kind of paradise.
