The Suiattle River originates from the Suiattle Glacier on the east slopes of Glacier Peak in the Cascade Range. It flows generally northwest to join the Sauk River north of Darrington. The Sauk River in turn joins the Skagit River, which empties into Skagit Bay, part of Puget Sound. It is a National Wild and Scenic River.
The Suiattle's largest tributaries include Chocolate Creek, entering the river's upper reaches, Dusty Creek, Sulpher Creek and Downey Creek. Image Lake is in the river's drainage basin.
