Hike & Kayak Waldo Lake

  • Eva Ramsey

Imagine floating on water so clear it looks like you are flying! Waldo Lake, sitting at 5,000 feet in the Waldo Lake Wilderness in the Cascade Mountains, is rated the 2nd clearest lake in the world. Sea kayak this huge lake, camp on islands, munch on huckleberries, and gaze at the snow-covered volcanoes in the distance. This trip includes a number of great hikes to surrounding mountains and waterfalls, so bring your hiking boots! No previous experience necessary, but we recommend folks be able to swim, have reasonable upper body strength for paddling, and be free of back, shoulder or wrist troubles.
