PRATT RIVER TRAIL

211 miles completed

September 6, 2018

The sun was rising as I woke up and I could already tell it was going to be a beautiful day. I had plans with Aimee in the afternoon to do some rock climbing out in Snoqualmie so I figured it was the perfect opportunity to head out early and get in a good old fashion trail run before we met up.

I picked a trail out in the Snoqualmie area where I had done some volunteer maintenance work on last year with Mountains to Sound Greenway. It’s the perfect trail for running with minimal elevation and plenty of shade as you wind through an old growth forest alongside the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River.

While this hike doesn’t offer much in the ways of views, it is incredibly beautiful and peaceful if you are looking for some solitude in nature. The trail says it is 6 miles round trip, but when I reached the 3 mile turn around point the trail didn’t seem to end. It became more narrow and slightly overgrown but I believe if you wanted to extend your run or hike it is definitely possible. If time permitted I would have explored more but had to turn around to go meet up with Aimee and climb some rocks.

No complaints here, today was all around awesome spent with some of my favorite adventures buds out in the woods!
