Trail shared by Sarah Baker

A very popular and easy path with awesome views of Mt. Shuksan across Picture Lake.

Description

The Picture Lake Path is a nice, easy paved trail that circles Picture Lake with very little elevation gain. There is parking around most of the lake with a couple paths leading to the main lake path. There are two viewpoints along the path that are great places to snap a picture of Mt. Shuksan across Picture Lake. Calm mornings and evenings are great times to get a beautiful reflection of Mt. Shuksan across Picture Lake.
