I'm going "hike camping" for the first time soon.

At summit lake near Coplay lake and Surprise lake in Pierce County. Its about 2.3 miles from where we're parking the suburban.

Picture of I'm going "hike camping" for the first time soon.

Is that considered high altitude camping? Is it rough terrain?

I do not know. What do you mean?
Is this a serious mountain hike on unmarked trails requiring the use of rope/crampons traversing treacherous terrain or do you just haul the 50-gallon cooler to the lake to fish?

It is on unmarked trials but i don't think its really treacherous.

Isn't Summit lake always really cold? I've never been there but my friend has.

Is it the same summit lake? Washington. (Not DC)
Yep, it definitley is since I don't know of any other Summit lake.

That'll be fun. I used to do that all the time when I was a teen. If I did it more now, I'd not be so fat.

It'll be pretty cool, i had this nice run in with some dogs up there with their owners, they weren't calling the dogs away, so i pulled up my shirt to show this big knife holder with a 6in knife in it on my side. They were pretty quick to calling. :-)
