Lime Kiln Trail

Lime Kiln Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This lesser-known end of Robe Canyon once contained the historic Everett and Monte Cristo Railway line that carried silver and gold. The railroad was built in 1892 and continued to run intermittently, when not closed by floods and slides, until the mines closed in 1920. The lower part continued to be used as a logging railroad until 1934.

Today the old railroad grade makes a beautiful walk above and alongside the churning South Fork of the Stillaguamish River. Set aside as part of the new Robe Canyon Historic Park, the safe, nearly level ledge walk is suitable for small children because there is so little elevation gain and loss, and the ledge is wide."

This is a very delightful little hike. The trail is mostly in wooded, well shaded pathways, except for a piece crossing private property for about 3/4mile. As the trail reenters the forest it drops steadily down to a wide, flat ledge that parallels the river. It is a beautiful, easy walk, and only a little muddy in a few places. Lunch on the rocks at the river at the trail's end was very delightful. Great time, highly recommended.
