Washington whitewater, Snoqualmie River - Middle Fork

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

 

CLASS IV     10.3 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so better not forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. The natural beauty of King County and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile. This is not the only paddling section in this river system, there are others too. When you're paddling down a Northern Cascade Range river like this one you always
    get great scenery along the way too. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This section
is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so why not pack your camp stove too. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The put-in location is a short drive from Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. The Burnboot Creek to Taylor River stretch of Snoqualmie River - Middle
