Always like to have my ducks in a row.  What I know of:

Cady Ridge - about 30 miles from Stevens Pass, 6 miles to the trailhead

Suiattle River Trail - about 75 miles from Stevens Pass, maybe 10-12 miles to the road closure (technically closed area until Oct 2022, I would have no ethical issue using it if it's getting to be an emergency)

Stehekin Valley Rd - about 112 miles from Stevens Pass, bus ride to Stehekin

A lot of the trails west of Glacier Peak are closed due to washouts many years ago.

Does anyone know of any decent early outs I've missed, either between Cady Ridge and Suiattle River Trail, or between the latter and Stehekin Valley Rd?

Depends on your tolerance for neck high grass

Haven't been up to check,  but WTA says they cleared Indian Creek  trail last year.

Last summer we entered at Meander Meadows from Little Wenatchee Ford and it had just been brushed out. We exited off the PCT at Middle Ridge to Buck Creek Pass and out at Trinity. Trail was excellent all the way.

When you are "miles from nowhere" you must have finally arrived at somewhere.
