7/28/2015, 9/28/2014 I have visited this trail twice now, once in the summer and once in the fall. Both were lovely. The first time I led a Meetup group and we made it just pass Lake Deer before it was decided it was the turn around point for the group. Careful not to blink after Lake Bear or you will miss that Deer is a different lake. On the second hike, I was with another Meetup group and we made it all the way to Snoqualmie Lake past Lake Deer, making it a 16 mile day. The water was low enough that day to waterslide the creek crossing on our way out!
Directions: Drive east on HWY 2 and just past MP 45 turn right on the road signed for Money Creek Campground. It says closed but you will turn right on Miller Road when it does. Drive 9 miles to the TH (FR 6410 to 6412). NW Forest Pass needed.
