This is a nice easy walk for anyone who is in average health. Small hills and fairly level terrain make this a good day hike. beautiful views and historical artifacts along the trail almost takes you back to the days that the railroad was operating. Take water and snacks to make your trip most enjoyable. Remember to lock all valuables... More

First cleared by Troop 43 of Lake Stevens in the 60's, the Robe Canyon Trail is now a huge draw for many hikers. The river is amazing at high water and plunges through the canyon... More

Can't really see much, other than blood sucking skeeters. Once the trail levels out you can hear the roar of the Stillaguamish River. When river becomes visible, this is when you may want... More
