Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Snohomish County Centennial Trail currently runs for 31.5 miles from Snohomish to the Skagit County line, linking neighborhoods with businesses and shopping districts. The trail provides a pleasant route for commuters and recreationists alike. The popular trail is open to cyclists, pedestrians, joggers and equestrians (adjacent natural surface trail) and is accessible for all levels of physical ability.

At the Machias trailhead you'll find a replica of the old railroad depot that was built here in the late 1890s to serve the Seattle, Lake Shore, and Eastern Railroad. The railroad branch between Snohomish and Arlington was bought by Northern Pacific then Burlington Northern, which stopped operating by 1987. The railroad once transported timber, ore, mail and people.

Beautiful, smooth ride

This is a trail cyclists, walkers, skaters should not miss. It is smooth, well kept and scenic. The best part for me, as a cyclist, is the length and quality of the ride. Pavement is consistently smooth and swept. Other active people on the trail are more

Don't miss...
