Cascade Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

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.

Parking and Trail Access

In Concrete, park at trail's end along Railroad Avenue. East of Sedro-Woolley you can park at some places along SR 20. Parking is also available in Lyman and at Baker Lake Road and by Challenger Road. Skagit Transit (SKAT) stops at four points near the trail enabling users to walk, run or cycle a stretch of the trail, then take the bus back to where they started. For information, including a bus schedule (Route 8/Route 717), see

Rode in summer of 2013. Easy ride, seems to be well maintained. Didn't run into any dirt bikes or water. Goes through farmland mainly. Surface is compact gravel. As it is an old train bed it is mainly flat and straight. read more
