Overview
Upper Stehekin Valley Trail is a 7.3 mile one way hike with 250 feet elevation gain. Located 69 miles east-northeast of Everett Washington. September and May are the best months to enjoy this hike.


This is an old Road that runs from Bridge Creek Camp to Cottonwood camp. It follows along Stehekin River but generally prevents easy access to the river except at Cottonwood camp. The road has been closed for many years due to flooding/erosion issues. Towards Cottonwood camp the road becomes significantly overgrown but is full of wildflowers in the summer.

Camping at Cottonwood camp requires a permit.
