Intrepretive walks planned at Snoqualmie Pass
The U.S. Forest Service is holding two interpretive walks this summer at Snoqualmie Pass.
Gold Creek Pond
This walk showcases plants, wildlife, scenery, and habitat restoration around Gold Creek Pond near Snoqualmie Pass. The trail is a flat one-mile paved loop, is barrier-free, and is suitable for all ages.
Saturday walks are held at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Reservation is required at (425) 434-6111. A $10 donation per person helps fund Information & Education Center programs.
Check-in is at the Snoqualmie Pass Forest Service Visitor Information Center no later than 9:15 a.m. or 12:15 p.m. Walks will be approximately one and a half hours long. The trail is in the open with not much shade. Tours will be held rain or shine, so be prepared for sudden weather changes.
A Northwest Forest Pass is not required, but one is provided.
There is an option to stay after the walk for a picnic or hiking.
This walk is about two miles round trip, and gains about 500 feet in elevation. It winds through native forest to Twin Lakes, which are shallow ponds in a steep-sided basin. On it, hikers learn about plants and trees, the history of the area, and can look for frogs and salamanders.
