The Upper Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie provides a wilderness-like trip within an hour’s drive of the Seattle metropolitan area. With stunning mountain views and only one difficult rapid (which can be portaged with some difficulty), the Upper Middle allows canoeists to get a feeling for the sort of experience that draws advanced rafters and kayakers to the few difficult several-day whitewater trips in the western United States. The Snoqualmie River takes its name from the Indian tribe from this area; the name derives from the Snoqualmie word for moon, the legendary life source for the tribe.
