Hidden Forest Waterfalls

Douglas fir, Hemlock, and regal Cedar trees greet you throughout the trail, as well as several lovely waterfalls, including one of the best tumbling falls in Washington, Humpback Creek.

 

Protected forest trail gives way to views of Granite and Humpback Mountains, as well as rocky slopes and late-summer wild flowers. From the lake's edge you can take in Abiel Peak to the southwest and Silver Peak to the east, as well as another waterfall descending into the lake's east shore.

Crystalline Waters

Stretch and flow with a thoughtfully designed gentle Vinyasa class at the lakeside, then kick back, take in the view and enjoy a delicious organic lunch (provided), before we head back down the trail.
