12th boulder at river. The left side, in the shade...

2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Right on the side of the Skykomish River. There are also several nice boulders in the forest, before reaching the railroad tracks.

Getting There 

Drive past the parking for the Lower Town Wall, past the Lower Lump and cross the railroad tracks. Continue about 0.6-0.7 miles until reaching the gate on the left (i.e., river) side with a sign saying "Forks of the Sky" State Park. Park near here and walk the road-trail downhill towards the river. The trail turns west at the railroad tracks to parallel the tracks. Around here look for several boulders in the woods on the right. For the main boulders, follow the railroad tracks further west (down river), looking for boulders down and left. After about 100 yards, some side trails down left will appear.
