Highlight: Roaring Ridge Lookout
While driving eastbound over Snoqualmie Pass, Roaring Ridge is a noticeable mountain on the other side of Keechelus Lake. Once the site of a fire lookout that has since been torn down, the trail leads up a ridge with scenic views of Lost and Mirror Lakes, terminating at a wide-open area with an amazing panoramic view. From the summit, Interstate 90 is clearly seen as well as surrounding peaks, almost in an unobstructed 360-degree view. The relative difficulty of this route means you typically get to enjoy this scenic location all to yourself. This route provides drivers with a mild challenge and views that are arguably some of the best in the cascades. During the fall, this trail is lit up with all sorts of red, orange, and yellow hues.
