From Everett, E on Highway 530 to Darrington for 32 miles. Right on Mountain Loop Highway (FSR 20) for 9.4 miles. Left on FSR 22 for 0.2 miles. Right at divide on unmarked road for 0.6 miles to trailhead on right
Beautiful, as the sun was shining through the forest. The mossy trees are amazing.
It looks as though a new trail is being added on. WTA says this trail is 5.0 miles round trip, 2.5 miles to the river though there wasn't river access.
This trail was only open for 3.4 miles after that I lost the trail, its past overgrown it more like bring a compass a saw and a big blade. I started the hike on FSR 22 it might also be open some way on the other side. Past that this isn't a bad hike just really short. If you like fly fishing I'd recommend this hike since it drops you off right at the edge of the river and someone has a fire pit all setup and ready to go.
