Dewey Lakes Hike: August 29, 2011

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Our friends, Abbie and Ian, did this hike with Ziggy and Gonzo on August 29 and took these great photos!  Check out all their photos on Alta Crystal Resort’s Facebook page by clicking here.

To get to this dog-friendly hike, take the Naches Peak Loop trail from the Chinook Pass pedestrian overpass about 1.5 miles to the junction with the Pacific Crest Trail.  You’ll see a sign for Dewey Lakes to the left.  Follow the trail for about 1.3 miles to the first lake, descending about 600 feet.  You can continue about a mile along the PCT to a more deserted part of the lake, or for an even longer hike, go to American Lake.  This is also a great spot for anglers since this lake is periodically restocked with trout.

This is a great time to visit the Lakes since the wildflowers are incredible, the lakes are peaceful and the weather is fantastic.  Hope to see you soon.
