We did the section from Snoq Pass to Stevens Pass from 8/20-8/23. It was in fine shape except for brush in a few places (above Waptus Lk)where I did take a spill! Lemah Crk was no problem to cross. The stream (can we please get a name for this one?)that pours out of Daniel was horendous to look at, but in the morning it was pretty easy to cross (we had a dog and waited until it dropped).

It got cold two nights, which helped for the bugs. Water was ok and plentiful in places but will be harder in a few weeks esp. from Lemah Crk to Waptus River. This section is so scenic, we were glad for the folks from out of town that they could see and appreciate the beauty of these mountains and the flowers.

Two friends tried the alternate rte. from Snow Lk through the Middle Fork Snoqualmie to Dutch Miller Gap. Absolutely not recommended. Trail in very poor shape, brushy and buggy.
