Necklace Valley Trail Description

From Mt. Baker-Snoqualamie National Forest:
The first 1.5 miles of the trail follows an old railroad grade, then enters Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Once crossing the river at milepost 5.0, the trail becomes very steep and rough, climbing 2,550 feet in 2.2 miles. There are campsites available on the river at milepost 5.0, and in Necklace Valley at Jade, Emerald, Ilswoot, Opal, and Cloudy, Al, Locket, and Jewel Lakes. Necklace Valley is a fragile sub-alpine valley with extensive meadows.

Drive US Highway 2 to mile marker 50.5, just east of Skykomish Ranger Station. Turn south onto Foss River Road (FS Road #68). Continue on FS Road #68 for 4.1 miles to the trailhead and parking area on the left.
