Skagit Valley Provincial Park

Trail Details:

Chittenden Meadow Self-Guiding Interpretive Trail: Chittenden suspension bridge provides easy foot access to this beautiful meadow with its wild flowers, prairie grasses and ponderosa pine. This is a 1 hour leisurely walk around this meadow.

Skagit River Trail: Starting on the east side of 26 mile bridge, this easy trail is 14.5 km long and takes 4 to 6 hours to hike. Following some of the most scenic stretches of the Skagit River, it passes through magnificent rhododendron groves that bloom in early to mid-June. The trail leads to Manning Park’s Sumallo Grove on Highway #3 where hikers can either arrange a vehicle pick-up or make the return trip via the trail. The De Lacey Wilderness camp is 10.5 km from 26 Mile Bridge and is the only site on the trail where camping is permitted.

Skyline II Trail: This beautiful trail starts near Whitworth meadow and traverses the Cascade Mountains into Manning Provincial Park. The elevation change is 1310 m. Mowich wilderness camp is located at km 13. It is a further 12 km to Strawberry Flats or 16.8 km to Spruce Bay. Incredible views, peaks and wild flowers of the mid-summer season make this strenuous hike rewarding. Extensive trail work was completed in 1993.

Centennial Trail: This 14 km section of the Centennial Trail parallels the Silver/Skagit road. The trail has recently been cleared and is in good condition. Trail access is via either the Skagit River trailhead, the Shawatum Bar parking lot, the Nepopekum Creek trailhead or the Skyline II trailhead.

Nepopekum Creek Trail: This 2 km trail has recently been built and follows Nepopekum Creek between Silver/Skagit road and the Centennial trail. It meanders through beautiful stands of Douglas Fir, Cottonwood and Western Red Cedar before ending at the Nepopekum Creek Bridge on the Centennial trail.

Silverdaisy Trail: Silverdaisy Trail follows Silverdaisy Creek and starts at 1.5 km along the Skagit River trail from Sumallo Grove. It is a strenuous 10 km hike to the summit of Silverdaisy Mountain. The trail then continues on to Cayuse Flats in Manning park

Galene Lakes Trail is unmaintained and in very poor condition and is not recommended for use.
