Rattlesnake Lake, Washington

Rattle Snake Lake, WA

Such a great day trip if you are trying to find something picturesque but semi close to the city.  Rattlesnake Lake is open year round, and is only about 30 miles east of Seattle.  There’s a great hike to Rattlesnake Ledge, that is only about 2 miles one way to get there.  We didn’t attempt that this day, but it was gorgeous!

The girls had fun chasing the dog around, and playing from stump to stump…there were a lot.  But overall a great and very popular walking and picnic area.  We will definitely be visiting again!
