Trail Overview

Middle Fork Nooksack is a 12.6-mile out-and-back gravel road located east of Deming and ending at Ridley Creek Trailhead. The road surface gets procedurally rougher, starting as a wide gravel road with some potholes and ending as a tight trail with some ruts and large deep potholes. The first 4.8 miles are passable to any vehicle, but after this point, some lower-clearance cars may have trouble. There are several bridges with views of creeks and rivers that feed into the Middle Fork Nooksack River. The first 9 miles are located within DNR land, with the last several miles ending in the Mount Baker National Forest. A Discover Pass is required.
