Hiking Washington State on Boulder River Trail Similitude-1
Boulder River Trail was a last minute Sunday morning type of thing, getting out the door around eleven am. Grabbing extra coffee, water, brown trout fishing hoodie and my pack out the door we went.
Distance 6.24 mi Ascent 872 ft Total Time 4h 37m
Getting there from Seattle, take I-5 north to Exit 208 Arlington / Darrington Hwy. 530. Exit right staying on Hwy 530 through Arlington for 23.6 miles from I-5. As you are passing milepost 41 turn right on French Creek Road. French Creek Road is badly potholed in several sections for the 3.7 miles to Boulder Creek Trail Head. You will pass a small outhouse and a limited number of campsites. Boulder River Trail Head offers no facilities so go before you go! Parking is limited to 15 cars or so. Enjoy the hike.
