Trail Overview

A beautiful hike with many views. This trail is just long enough to be a great day hike.Perfect for a hike in pick-nic.

How to get there

Drive East on I90 from Seattle. Take exit 47. At the end of the ramp turn left. At the T turn left and follow the signs to Granite Mountain Lookout. About half a mile come to the parking lot and trailhead.

Route Description

This is a well worn trail that winds throught the forest. After gaining about 800 feet the trail will fork at 1.2 miles. Go left at the fork and continue up Pratt Lake Trail 1007. At about 3.1 miles the trail divides, go right. The trail climbes up to the north and around the upper end of Olallie Lake, which you can see down below. At 4.3 miles reach a fork and go right. The trail drops quickly into the lake basin. At about 5.7 miles the trail comes to the lake at its northern tip.

Typical Conditions

This is almost like a highway. Its wide and open. For a few sections the trail is rocky and full of roots. There are many views and on a clear day you can see Rainier on your traverse around the the upper end of Olallie Lake. Summer is the one of the best times to travel this trail but then again if you love snow, winter is alot of fun and there is very few people.

Fees, Permits, etc.

  • Northwest Forest Pass required to park at this trail head. The pass is available at National Forest offices and visitor centers, via private vendors or online. Note that WTA and some other vendors listed do not carry day passes.

After the Hike
