DirectionsFrom Monroe, Washington, drive east on Highway 2 and turn north at the Index turnoff onto the North Fork Skykomish River Road (Road #63). Drive for 18 miles to the trailhead.
Blanca Lake is an impressive lake tucked between Columbia and Kyes Peaks. Because it is fed by the Columbia Glacier, it is a beautiful greenish color. The trail switchbacks to a high point at Virgin Lake before descending 500 feet to the shores of Blanca Lake.
