9-mile-hike in the forest to this emarald pool

Colchuck Lake is located in the Central Cascades, Washington. It is an extremely popular and trafficked trail since it is one of the two gateways to the Enchantments, and the trailhead also accesses Stuart Lake. Note that it is rated as moderate, so make sure to read reviews and plan ahead. Definitely wear good shoes, bring enough food, and water. It is about 3 hours from Seattle, so I highly recommend planning an overnight stay near the area to avoid the long commute from Seattle. Leavenworth is a great touristy place with tons of lodging options, but otherwise, car camping is just as fun. This has been one of the hardest hikes in my quarantine but the view at the top was so worth it!
