I did this as a roundtrip loop starting and finishing at the Jack Creek TH. I went up Jack Creek to the Meadow Creek junction, then up Meadow Creek to the Snowall/Cradle Lake junction, up to Cradle Lake, down Snowall Creek, and out French Creek/Icicle River trail. I ran the road back to my truck at the Jack TH. Note there are no bridges across the 4 major stream crossings, effort was required to find places to wade across that were acceptable. This route follows beautiful Central Cascades valleys and gets you to a spectacular alpine lake. High country views, plentiful water, and a nice flow of travel make this a great outing.
