Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley

Hikes, Campgrounds & Day Use Areas

Surrounded by alpine peaks, old growth forests, hidden lakes, and designated wilderness, the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley offers abundant outdoor recreational opportunities in a pristine setting.  The Middle Fork area will not disappoint hardy recreation enthusiasts who enjoy riding on mountain bike trails, kayaking or fly fishing on a wild river, or hiking for days in backcountry wilderness.  Want a more casual outing?  Families enjoy camping, picnicking, hiking trails of a variety of lengths, or just skipping stones on the river. Even a simple drive down the Middle Fork Road feels a lot like a drive through a national park.   

Just 36 miles from downtown Seattle, this wilderness playground defies comparison.  No other major population center stands so close to such vast and accessible public lands.
