An easy-to-moderate half-day walk along the old Milwaukee Railroad grade, which ends with a dynamic view up the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Valley. The trail is a combination of old railroad grade and forest path. The mix of deep Douglas fir and western hemlock forest with sun breaks and red alder thickets creates good opportunities for bird-watching. This great early- or off-season hike is always accessible, even when snow covers every other trail in the area.
