Crowds abate once past Denny Creek's waterfalls--the hordes thinning to a respectable number of serious hikers looking for an alpine lake experience. And what an experience! The trail finally crests Hemlock Pass and descends moderately to Melakwa Lake, a broad alpine wonder with rocky slopes leading straight down into the crystal water.
From Seattle: Go east on Interstate 90 to the Ashel Curtis exit. Park at the Denny Creek Campground and proceed to the Hemlock Pass trailhead.
