Hiking Camp Brown

Located approximately eleven miles down the Middle Fork Road, this gently meandering half-mile loop trail, built following Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, provides scenic views of the congressionally-designated Wild and Scenic Middle Fork Snoqualmie River.

Visitors can stroll along the gravel-lined loop trail that is routed through lush forest with frequent sightings of the river surging by and the rock face of Garfield Mountain! Nestled along the riverbank and trail are eleven picnic sites with charcoal grates, which make a perfect spot to enjoy lunch with a view. A short ramp and set of stairs also give visitors access to a gravel bar beside the river.

Beyond the stunning views, this site also has an interesting historical story. Camp Brown derives its name from Robert Brown, a civil engineer and surveyor who planned and supervised what makes up most of today’s Middle Fork roads and trails. Brown was tragically killed by a train backing up near the site in 1928 and the site was named in his honor.

Three interpretive signs offer context while you walk. Dig deeper by reading the interpretive content on the kiosk panel at the trailhead as well.
