We loved this walk! It was a flat gravel trail well maintained that wound its way along the bay. Great views and tons of bird watching.
The trail is wide enough for three people across to walk. The surface is level and perfect for aging/overused knees. Excellent walk for visitors.
There was hardly anyone on this trail, so I'm kinda compelled to tell you it was horrible in an attempt to keep it as is and all to myself! (insert hideous laughter). But as the last poster indicated, it is a hidden treasure that is barely used. From Swede Heaven west, it is all packed gravel, and a few paved areas. East it is not maintained, but totally ride-able with a hybrid - don't need mnt-bikes. They made it sound like the trail disappeared or got impassable with "swallowed up by thick forest and dense bogs", but we quickly figured out that is on the sides - not IN the trail - duh! I see that the county has applied for permits to fix the washed out area near Arlington, so maybe that will happen next year! When it does, and if/when they gravel the section between Swede Heaven and Darrington, this will be a totally awesome trail (really, it already is!!!)
Nice flat well-maintained gravel Trail. Beautiful scenery in the fall. Only went from Sedro-Woolley to Lyman. Plan to do the upper half from Lyman to concrete later this fall.
This is one of our weekly rides and we love to combine it with the South End Trail giving you a 15 mile round trip ride. Start at Bloedel Donovan Park and take the train just over the highway 5 overpass. Make a left on Lincoln and take to Kentucky. When you get to the high school, stay to the left and catch the bike path heading towards Railroad Ave. Railroad Ave will dead end at the South End Trail taking you to the square in Fairhaven.
Great easy run walk trail with beautiful scenery. Good for the whole family!
The trail is nice for walking, biking, jogging, but not skating. It is not paved as listed here.
This trail needs some help, It was so over grown that I really was wondering if I was on the right trail about 75% of the time. I am glad I am very secure on my bicycle in this type of riding because it was not easy and I had to dismount in a few spots. I would stay away for cycling and even hiking, just not worth the thorns and bushwhacking you need to do.
This trail begins with a few confusing blocks through an industrial part of city, but then becomes its own path through a largely shady stretch that is very pleasant. On the river, you can connect with the river walk. For a mile of so of s broad boardwalk, there are nice river views, parks, playgrounds, art, casual restaurants. The trail becomes rough gravel after passing warehouses.
Amazing, peaceful and lovely flat trail with lots of shade.
Whitehorse Trail is essentially open now, but access from the popular Centennial Trail to the rail bridge west of Trafton Trailhead remains closed due to unstable soil. This isolates an otherwise hidden gem of a trail. This means that you can have 23 miles of scenic, gentle rail trail all to yourself, with the possible exception of a few fellow travelers “in the know” and local swimmers and fishers. The trail runs parallel to Oso Slide Memorial Hwy (State Rte 530) and the north fork of the Stillaguamish River. The repurposed former BNSF rail route, disused after 1990, offers solitude just off the highway, lush forest vegetation and an inviting river, a refuge from dappled sun and light rain. There are openings to spectacular views of the river and encircling mountains, abandoned mills, rustic farms and homesteads, and sometimes flashes of wildlife, and beach life. There are several planked or concrete bridges, long straightaways and shallow curves, and two, busy, no-signal highway crossings, but otherwise few notable road crossings. The trail is wide and smooth, freshly resurfaced with fine, coarse gravel suitable for road bikes in the western- and mid-sections. It’s even paved in two places, near lively Twin Bridges and serene Cicero Pond, and fronting the somber Oso Landslide Memorial site. East of the Swede Heaven Rd crossing toward Darrington, the trail narrows and is swallowed up by thick forest and dense bogs. It gets much bumpier or more muddy in season, suitable for mountain bikes. There is an easily passable (though not officially) slide area east of the rodeo and bluegrass music arenas. Nearby is a mountain bike “skills area”. Parking is offered in the mid-section of the trail north of the highway at a paved lot on Fortson Mill Rd, a dirt lot immediately off C-Post Rd, and an extensive pullout at Hazel Hole. Trailheads at Trafton (Kroeze Rd/115th, at Cloverdale Farm) on the west end and Darrington (Price St, past the IGA) to the east offer space for about a half-dozen vehicles each. There are many unnamed pullouts along the highway. Per Snohomish County rules, the multi-use trail is open to bicyclists including class 2 ebikes, hikers and horses only (no motorized vehicles). Hours are 7 am to dusk, pets must be on-leash, no fires, dumping or alcohol, and the trail doesn’t offer latrines, water, or other services at this time
We rode this beautiful and fun ride and enjoyed water views (the first mile) and beautiful, shaded forests the remainder 6 miles. The trail was well marked in all but one area (about 6 miles in from Port Townsend) where you ride a gravelly rural road for a very short distance. One small section through the forest is almost like single track: fun!
