Washington whitewater, Pratt River

King county, Kaleetan Creek to Middle Fork Snoqualmie section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV     6 miles
  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 nature scenery of King County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions
    for lots of people. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Kaleetan Creek to Middle Fork Snoqualmie section is one of them. The Kaleetan Creek to Middle Fork Snoqualmie section of Pratt River in King
County is 6 miles long and has been rated as a class IV section by American Whitewater. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of spots for that. The river winds through the Northern Cascade Range and you get great scenery. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Washington tend to be more challenging than the national average, so don't forget that a lot of  
the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This stretch is mid length, suitable for an afternoon trip.

Briefly about the general area:
The Pratt Lake Trail offers hiking at its best, and Alpental is a very popular ski area in the vicinity. So many entertaining things to do here in the Northern Cascade Range, too wonderful to be true. Going to Olallie State Park close to Pratt River is a perfect thing to do, and hiking is a popular thing to do around Pratt River; Mount Defiance Trail is a wonderful local trail.
