Updated: 04/11/2004. Due to the flood this winter, the first rapids on this run are Class V to
unrunnable. There are logs, undercuts and boulders blocking exit routes. The portage was long over
a ton of logs, so we chose to abort the trip and run Granite/Ruby about 30 miles east of here. If
you do run this and make the portage, the run below looked cleaner, but you'd only have one Class
IV rapid followed by 5 miles of Class II with a bunch of log portages we saw from the road. I would
not recommend this run at this time.
Logistics: At Highway 20 mile 110.7 (less than 5 miles east of Marblemount) you will cross Bacon
Creek just before it joins the Skagit. This is the take-out. To reach the put-in go to Highway 20
mile 110.9 where FR 1060 heads upstream along river left. Follow the road 4.9 miles to the junction
with FR 1064 which heads 0.1 mile down to the river.
