Peek A Boo lake

Darrington Mountain Loop Area

Miles: 5 roundtrip

Elevation: 1,500 feet gained

Starting on an old road, you soon enter old growth forest. Cross a few creeks as you climb easily to a ridge and follow it before dropping to the lake. Views on the ridge are great! There are some campsites on the north east side of the lake for those wanting to take advantage of the early morning fishing.

  • Get there: Follow Highway 530 to the major four-way stop at the gas station in downtown Darrington. Turn right and continue nine miles. Turn right onto FS road 2080 just before a bridge over the Sauk River. Follow the road for just over one mile and turn right on FS road 2081. This road continues for three and a half miles. Stay left here onto road 2086 and reach the trailhead at this roads end after one mile.
