Anyone up for afternoon Pilchuck run? I can be there by 1:45 or so. Should be a good level with some nice sunshine.

She's a runnin'!

I can't make it out today... but if anyone's looking to hit something good today... get it while it's up. It won't last long.

The area around Pilchuck Creek Campground has been effectively closed to the public. This happened after two accidents at the falls this summer involving two deaths and several serious injuries. The people who own the property around the falls either also own the road to the campground, or it has been closed with the road owners blessing so it appears there is no longer legal access to the falls scout or the putin for the middle section. The property has been posted no trespassing, and the police have been asked to enforce it. Until this gets settled boaters should either run the upper with the middle run or find legal access elsewhere. I am still trying to research the issue to find the full extent of the closure.

There may be a legal way to get in there by hiking in off a trail that runs along the creek. It starts across the road from the south entrance to Walker Valley ORV Park and at one time ended just upstream of the campground. It has been years since I have been on this trail and I never went to the end of it so I don't know if this is still accurate.

Thanks for the beta Wiggins, I tried driving down there last winter and the gate was closed so it's likely this is a longer standing issue.
The line will become apparent

The gate closure is old news, but you were still allowed to hike in to scout the falls or walk to the putin. What has changed is that now it is closed to the public, so you are not allowed to walk in anymore.

This is not an issue for anyone running the upper/middle combo.

interesting...I've often ridden my dirt bike over to check the falls.

are there ever issues with boaters at the falls?  Those deaths had nothing to do with boaters, it was hikers climbing at night if I remember right, and an SAR guy fell trying to reach them.

bummer

I am not aware of any issues with boaters. I am hopeful that will lead to us getting an agreement for access like we have at the Green.
