Challenge 38: Hike Spring Hill/Lake Desire

A 900-foot-tall rocky outcrop that provides great views of the two lakes and the Cascade foothills. There is also a boat launch nearby.

Park at 18552-18698 W Spring Lake Dr. SE, Renton, WA 98058 and follow the signs to the Peak Trail. Follow the Peak Trail until you get to the top. Once you're at the top, take some time to enjoy a unique ecological area known as a 'bald top'. If you're lucky enough, you might even see a chocolate lily. Make sure to enjoy the view!
