- Boulder River, a tributary of the North Fork Stillaguamish, runs approximately 10 miles through
the Northwest section of the Boulder Creek Wilderness. It is a low elevation valley which often allows for year round, snow free enjoyment of a magnificent but often forgotten part of the forest. This Wilderness also encompasses the Long Creek Research Natural Area. Few trails exist in this wilderness but its beauty and solitude is worth the effort.
Hiking, backpacking, dispersed camping, fishing, mountain climbing, and rock climbing activities are available within the Boulder River Wilderness. Some of the popular trails are the Boulder River Trail, Eight-Mile Trail and Three Fingers Trail.
The Boulder River Wilderness lies on the western boundary of the Mt. Baker-Snoqualime National Forest just southwest of the town of Darrington. The Wilderness can be accessed via the Mountain Loop Hwy., off of Forest Roads #2040, #2065, #4052, and #41.
