North Fork Sauk Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Choose between a leisurely jaunt up a wilderness valley harboring some of the biggest and oldest trees this side of Glacier Peak, or a short, steep stint to an old lookout site with a grand view of Sloan Peak’s glistening glacier. Or combine destinations for a most satisfying day in the woods. Whether you aim for Red Mountain or head deep up the valley, the tumbling, churning, glacial-fed North Fork Sauk River is always present in sight or in sound."
