Washington whitewater, Snoqualmie River - South Fork

King county, I-90 Exit 52 to Denny Creek Campground section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS IV-V     1.5 miles
  The average Washington whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that the rivers in this state are less manageable. If you're coming from Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further down. The I-90 Exit 52 to Denny Creek Campground section of Snoqualmie River - South Fork is 1.5
    miles long and is a class IV-V section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. No need to look hard for hotels, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking
there are lots of good places for that around here. The scenic beauty of Washington and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Getting a good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. There are so many stretches to paddle in this river system, the I-90 Exit 52 to Denny Creek Campground stretch is just one  
of many. The beautiful Northern Cascade Range scenery is an added bonus. This is a pretty short section so better bring some good walking shoes.

Briefly about the general area:
Franklin Falls is an inspiring site to stop at while you're here. Snoqualmie River - South Fork is right by the Annette Lake Trail, and some out of the ordinary geology is available here, The Tooth is right here. This is such a great river. Take a hike on the Middle Fork Trail, and while you're here you will meet lots of people from close by Snoqualmie Pass. The beauty of mother nature reveals herself at Keekwulee Falls, and you can never get enough of the great skiing at Alpental.
