Accessibility at Rainy Lake Trail
Subalpine forest and wet meadows line this level, paved trail to Rainy Lake. Benches and interpretive signs accent the scenery. Bubbling streams and twittering birds mix with crisp, clean mountain air. In 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) the trail ends at an observation deck with views of waterfalls, a glacier and Rainy Lake. Accessible parking and toilet available. A Northwest Forest Pass is required for parking at this location. Snow covers the trail until late-June, contact the Methow Valley Ranger Station, 509-996-4000, for current trail conditions.
Did You Know?
Grizzly bear tracks can be a reliable indicator of species? Grizzly bear and black bear forepaw tracks are distinct from one another and often times better than a photo of the bear to confirm an observation. So don't just look up, look down.
