Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!
Tricia and I found an interesting hike in Eastern Washington this week. It is about 2 1/2 hr drive on I90 from Seattle. According to WTA website, this hike is 12 miles around trip. The route is somewhat unclear if you are just following their description.
If you search on google maps, there are two trailheads where you can start your adventure: Ancient Lakes trailhead and Dusty Lake trailhead. Both of them should take you to the same basin where a group of tranquil lakes can be found. From Dusty Lake TH, the trail is flat and easy. You can take your kids on this trail without any trouble. It’s about 2-3 miles to get to the lakes. If you start from Ancient Lakes TH, it’s a little more difficult since you need to descend a scree field along side of waterfall #2. It’s not a huge descend, but it may be tricky for some hikers. Our whole trip was about 6 miles. It was easy and it was sunny. I can see this place being a wonderful spot for our winter camping destination.
Our only regret today was not to have packed our camping gear. It’d be wonderful to sleep under the stars here. We love Eastern Washington!
Feel free to comment below. I am happy to answer any questions.
