Swamp Creek, FS 1709, begins on the south side of US Highway 410, close to FS 19. The trail runs 13 miles through the Wenatchee National Forest, climbing to an elevation of 4600 feet. The road passes Halfway Flat Campground and crosses Bumping River on a small one-lane bridge. The trail connects with FS-1600, which goes straight to Clover Springs Campground or left down into the Nile Creek Valley, where there was a huge forest fire in the summer of 2021. There are many dispersed camping opportunities and overlooks with great views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.
