CLASS V     3 miles
  The put-in location is a short drive from Mount Vernon-Anacortes, as you can see on the road map further down. The natural beauty of Washington and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water will make you feel great. There's camping available near Squire Creek. The Squire Creek Road to dowstream stretch of Squire Creek in Snohomish County is 3 miles long and it is classified as a class V section by American Whitewater. There arenít any hotels
    right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. This is a short paddling stretch so you'll have to walk back to the
start over and over. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this is an area with plenty of spots for that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Washington tend to be more challenging than the national average, so better not forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. The beautiful Northern Cascade Range scenery is an added bonus. This is one of a small number of paddling sections  
in this river system, there are a few others too. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature have a lot of people coming here.

Briefly about the general area:
Going for a hike on the Finney Peak Trail is always a great adventure; during your spree here you'll meet some people from Darrington for sure. So much enjoyable stuff to do here in the Northern Cascade Range, too delightful to be true. When you're here at Squire Creek it's always fun to stop by Rockport State Park. A lot of precipitation falls at Squire Creek. November is the month that gets the most rain, and July on the other hand is the driest.
