2/13/16 I was here last on President’s weekend of this year and although it was a wet day, it was a great time with friends. I wrote about our hike on my post, The Pull. This is a nice long trail that meets up with the Pacific Crest Trail but you can meander along the river as far as you feel up to. The trailhead for this hike is also shared with another hike, Sulphur Mountain if you are up for more of a challenge and want beautiful views of Glacier Peak.
Directions: This hike starts 23 miles in at the end of the Suiattle River Road (FR 26) off SR 530 a few miles north of Darrington, WA. You can get there from either the Arlington (208) or Burlington exit (230) off I-5. This is a great road that turns to gravel but it is wide and well maintained. Drive 23 miles until it ends at the trailhead.
