Image Lake


From Darrington, drive north 7 miles to the Suiattle River Road #26. Approximately four miles past the turnoff for Green Mountain, you will come to the end of the road and a large parking lot.


Follow the Suiattle River Trail (Number 784). In about 6.5 miles, cross Canyon Creek. Another 3.25 miles is a trail junction that you'll want to stay to the left (trail number 785) beginning your climb to Image Lake. Thirteen miles from the trailhead keep to the left. This leg switchbacks up Miners Ridge to another junction. This time, keep to the right to Image Lake which is in a small basin underneath the ridge line.
