Hiking Dusty Ridge

A long-abandoned trail that branches off the Upper Suiattle River Trail to Dusty Creek. 

The Upper Suiattle River Trail begins at the Pacific Crest Trail and drops to down to the Suiattle River. If you can cross Dusty Creek (difficult, as there is no bridge and the water can be dangerous), you can navigate five miles to a junction with the Dusty Creek and Triad Creek trails.
