Nolte State Park - Deep Lake Hiking Loop

Puget Sound Hikes
Distance: 1.4 miles
Elevation Gain: Very Little
Nolte State Park is a small day-use park that mainly features water activities on Deep Lake. There is the usual stuff like shelters, grassy ball fields and kids play equipment. As far as something unique, the park has a 1.4 mile hiking trail around Deep Lake. The trail is probably one of the easiest you can find for testing young children. Along the way, there are several huge old growth trees that they can spot for everyone. This hike is best in winter, when the park is closed. There is parking out on the main road, across the street from the park at the north boat launch gate. The loop trail starts just past the gate. You can go here when snow is just about everywhere else. The winter closure is from Oct. 1 to April 1. Formerly a vacation resort known as Deep Lake Park and owned by the Nolte family, the area was donated in the early 1970s to the state of Washington by Minnie Nolte, for whom the park is named.
Located north of the town of Enumclaw. From east of Enumclaw on SR 410, turn north on 284th Ave., S.E., and continue approximately seven miles to park entrance. Park address is 36921 Veazie Cumberland Road Enumclaw, WA 98022
