WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.
From I-5, head east on Hwy 20 for approximately 46 miles to Marblemount. Pass the North Cascades National Park Wilderness Information Center, where you can get permits if you are planning an overnight trip. Continue another 25 miles, and then turn right into Colonial Creek Campground, just past milepost 130. Follow signs to the trailhead near the amphitheater. Restrooms with running water are available.
