Head east toward Stevens Pass on Highway 2. A quarter mile past the Deception Falls site look for an unmarked turnoff for Forest Road 6088 (FR 6088). Follow the gravel road up and stay to the right. The trailhead is compact and has parking for roughly 5 cars.
Deception Creek is takes to what feels to be an old world forest, it is thick and narrow and follows the Deception Creek up to the Pacific Crest Trail at Deception Lakes and Deception Pass.
Along the trail there are many campsites along the creek making for an easy overnight camping trip or a leaping point into the deeper Alpine Lakes Wilderness
