Hike/Snowshoe to June Lake, WA

Washington Marble Mountain Sno Park

Added by jeremy weisser

This is the perfect hike for a short snowshoeing adventure. The lake is beautiful with a waterfall right in the center and many other small falls around it. On a clear day you get a wonderful view of Mt. St. Helens.

In the winter you will need to start at Marble Mt. Snowpark and purchase a snow park permit. The hike starts here on the eastern side. Follow the Pine Ski Trail for about 1 mile along NF-83 Road. Then follow the June lake Trailhead up to June lake for about 1.5 miles. You will come to June lake at this point. It is an easy hike to the lake and beautiful in the snow. From here you can continue on a loop that goes to chocolate falls or head back the way you went up. To go to Chocolate Falls, follow the Pica Trail to the Swift Creek Ski trail and head back down. This will take you straight back to the snowpark. The out and back hike is around 5.25 miles, the loop is around 7 miles.

Pack List

  • Snowpark Pass in the winter - $22
