River Description


An easy but fun run through woods, farms, and suburban neighborhoods. Possibilities exist for longer or shorter runs. The run can be extended by continuing downstream to the Snohomish or putting in upstream from a turnout on Russell Road. The bridge (just upstream from the turnout) on Russell Road is not recommended as a put-in because there is usually significant wood just downstream.

Wood can be in play, especially in the section upstream of Dubuque road. Also wood is very common is the river upstream of this section.

Makes for a great after work training run, and with the Centennial trail nearby there are opportunities for bike shuttles.

The recommended range is 300-1000 but is likely OK higher, but may be a bit swift for beginners.

Directions Description


There are multiple access spots for shorter/longer runs. The bridge on Dubuque road serves as a midway access spot.

This run can be extended by putting in upstream: from OK Mill Road continue to Russel road and turn left and put-in at a turnout at .6 miles. Upstream from this spot is often very woody and not recommended. Also the run can be extended by continuing down stream to the Snohomish River and taking out at the Snohomish boat ramp.
