Washington whitewater, Snoqualmie River - Middle Fork

King county, Hardscrabble Creek to Burnboot Creek section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS V     4 miles
  If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Washington you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so you'd better keep in mind that many runs in this state are not easy. The Hardscrabble Creek to Burnboot Creek stretch of Snoqualmie River - Middle Fork in King County is 4 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class V section. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are
    sure to keep you coming back for more. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this area has a large number of paddling rivers. If you're coming from Ellensburg it's not a long drive at
all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further down. Lodging is available near the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The wonderful King County scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. Whitewater paddling here in the Northern Cascade  
Range is a great experience. This stretch is mid length, good for a one day paddling trip. The Hardscrabble Creek to Burnboot Creek section is one of many paddling sections in this river system.

Briefly about the general area:
The slopes of Alpental are so inviting nobody can resist, and on a pleasant day you can take a hike along the Annette Lake Trail. But wait, there's more exciting stuff to do in the Northern Cascade Range. A short tour to Goldmyer Hot Springs is always worthwhile, and if the weather is great, you can go for a hike along the Middle Fork Trail. This is a really good river.
