River Description


The trick to this run is getting access as this reach runs through Weyerhaeuser's Snoqualmie Tree Farm. You will need to check current access policy and purchase a permit and a map of their road network (most other maps are missing key roads). Pipeline Road parrallels the run with access just downstream of the North Fork and South Fork confluence and at the put-in bridge 5.9 miles upstream.

The best part of this river is the last half downstream of Lynch Creek where the river cuts through some impressive bedrock canyons. Upstream of this section, the river is characterized by small boulder gardens and lots of wood. Reports on this run are sketchy at best so treat it as an exploratory and submit a comment if you have additional information.

Lat/Longitude data are very approximate.
