Mail Box Peak
Mail Box Peak - bridges and creek crossing awaits your puppy in the lower sections of the hike, and then the switchback starts. At roughly 850 of elevation gain per mile, the dogs will begin the tough climb up the mountain until they are standing triumphantly next to the Mailbox.

Denny Creek Falls
We hiked along this manicured trail on a rainy July day with our dog. The river (creek?!) is so clear and so beautiful; you can hear the river and the multiple waterfalls all along the walk. Getting to the falls was a cinch. The scenery is simply astounding and makes you appreciate this beautiful world of natural wonders.

Ira Spring Trail - Mason Lake
Sun-drenched ridgelines, blooming trillium, and sparkling alpine waters define this fitting tribute to one of Washington’s greatest trail advocates. An ode to lifelong nature photographer and conservationist Ira Spring, this highly popular summer trail traverses steep pitches and open meadows en route to Mason Lake, a popular weekend camping destination in its own right.
If you believe that good things only come to those who toil and sweat (or if you don’t like to share the outdoors with other hikers), steer clear of Snow Lake. Its translucent depths, tucked underneath the uppermost 2,000 feet of Chair Peak, are removed from the highway crossing Snoqualmie Pass by just a short trail with minimal elevation gain. Elitists need not apply – Snow Lake is the most visited lake in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness…and rightly so.
