“This journey combines many area highlights: Spray Park & Falls, Seattle Park, views and wildflowers.”— Megan W
Cross over the rocky ridge separating Spray Park from Seattle Park, following cairns if the weather is bad. Use care crossing the snow fields. Descend the mountain's flank crossing more islands of trees and scree. Upon leaving the snow behind and reaching the braided headwaters of Marmot Creek, you may opt to rest awhile in pretty Seattle Park. Continue north, switchbacking steeply downhill beside Marmot Creek.
Finally, this plunge abates when Cataract Creek appears. Travel more mellow terrain through Cataract Valley with it's multiple mini-falls tumbling down the hillsides. The trail becomes increasingly overgrown here, although there are many varieties of wildflowers and berries to enjoy. The Spray-Seattle Park Trail ends at an intersection with the Wonderland Trail where the Cataract Creek empties into Carbon River. Just a short distance to the east on the Wonderland Trail is the bouncy suspension bridge.
