Description

Start the Washington Lake trail from the Fourth of July trailhead. Be ready for uphill with plenty of rocks and a fair amount of foot traffic right off the bat. The grade eventually lessens, flattening out before the trail junction with Antz Basin.

Stay straight to continue on Washington Lake trail, rolling through a meadow and across the outlet to Fourth of July Creek Lake. Ridgelines from the White Cloud Mountains are prominent in the background. It's a stunning backdrop and just the beginning of an endless amount if amazing scenery.

The route continues on a rolling traverse followed by a quick downhill to the shores of Lake Washington. Enjoy a little more downhill before running across a large marshy meadow to an intersection with Washington Lake Creek trail.

Stay straight/right through the valley to another short climb. The trail then descends consistently to Germania Creek trail.
