Fagin's Hike of the Week- Shoe Lake

Updated 9-1-2016

This trail is just 1/8 east of White Pass (Hwy 12) and you hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. This is a stunning alpine lake and one can do as day hike or as an overnight hike and camp just past the lake about one mile or little less. On ridge you will have views of Mt. Rainier and the major peaks of the Goat Rock. Thanks to Alan Bauer for the photos.
