Getting There

Head east on Hwy 2 toward Stevens Pass. Pass the town of Skykomish and the Skykomish Ranger Station east of town. Watch for the Foss River Road FS 68, and turn right. In 2.6 miles, cross under the railroad trestle and over a small bridge. In another mile will be a Y intersection; take a left here on FS 6830. The number is hard to see, but it will be on the right after you turn. Follow 6830 for 7 miles. Turn right on FS 310 and follow it to the end and trailhead in 1.3 miles. The trailhead parking allows space for about 10-12 cars, and there is a backcountry toilet just behind the trailhead sign on the right.
