About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]
Nice little hike through the woods and over a few stream/creek crossings. More than likely, you will get wet, so have good shoes! There are also a few spots where the trail is pretty uneven and rocky, so be careful. When you are almost to the end, you will reach some stairs that will help take you up that elevation gain needed. Once at the falls, there is a small place to rest on the ground and take some photos.

Trail Map

Getting There

To reach the trailhead from Everett, follow Highway 2 east to the small town of Gold Bar. Continue on Highway 2 for seven more miles. Just as the road curves left to reveal a large bridge over the Skykomish River, turn right onto Mount Index Road. Proceed on this dirt road a quarter mile. Turn right again, following the sign to Lake Serene Trail 1068 and the parking lot 500 feet ahead.

Consider visiting Lake Serene on a weekday. While there may appear to be ample parking, the lake’s popularity, particularly on weekends, often results in more cars than the trailhead can accommodate. Please note the No Parking signs. If you must park on the side of the dirt road, pull well off the road so that traffic and emergency vehicles can pass and other hikers can exit the lot.
