Fagin's Hike of the Week- Olallie Lake

Updated  2-2-2017

This a great snowshoe trip starting at Pratt Lake trail and go to a view point above Olallie Lake. The is a very popular trail and when we went you did not need snowshoes as it was packed down. However micro-spikes were very handy. At viewpoint you see Mt. Rainier and the lake.
