The Cascade Trail follows the Skagit River along an old rail bed of the Burlington Northern line, between Sedro-Woolley and Concrete. The trail parallels State Route 20 through cultivated fields, open space, scattered woodlands and river bottoms. The nearby river provides for some great fishing and nice river views, as well as scenic vistas of Sauk Mountain and other Cascade Range peaks.
