trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
4.4mi round trip
850ft elevation gain
North of Seattle.
Opened in 2015, this new tail takes you deep into the Sultan River Canyon where towering old growth trees and steep slopes shade a remote section of the Sultan River. …
That was enough for me. I was first on the trail April 9th, early in the hiking season. I ran some of the flats and downhill … and walked uphill.
You can drive out as far as Culmback Dam.
Spada Lake is the reservoir for Everett, WA.
From there it’s about 1mi walk on a good logging road before you drop steeply into the canyon.
The trail dead ends at the river. I relaxed on a rock in the river for a good 10 minutes.
Then began the climb back up while listening to an audio book for motivation. 🙂
