Suiattle River Trail 784


The trail maintains a fairly level grade, following the river, winding in and out of stream gullies, passing through groves of old and young trees for approximately 6.5 miles to Canyon Creek, where several camp spots are available.

Approximately a half mile beyond Canyon Creek is the junction with the Pacific Crest Trail and the south crossing of Suiattle River.  At this junction the trail becomes the Pacific Crest Trail north and continues toward Suiattle Pass. Follow the PCT/Suiattle Trail easterly from the junction for another three miles to the junction with the Miners Ridge Trail 785 on the left (north).
