Skagit River Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Despite its length, the mostly level trail along the east bank of the Skagit River, from its confluence with the Sumallo River to the Silver Skagit road, is perfect for the nonexpert hiker.D escribed here are the upper and lower sections as separate hikes, each with a round trip length of approximately 13 km (8 miles) and taking about 4.5 hours.

Originally known as the Whatcom Trail, constructed in 1858 to connect the United States with the brigade trails to the B.C. interior, the route was later used by gold miners, immigrants and trappers. Today it offers the hiker a sampling of impressive coastal forest, the company of a lively river, and a variety of plants ranging from rhododendrons (mid-June is their flowering time) to lichens."
