One of the greatest challenges of early railroad construction in Washington was cutting a route through the rugged Cascades, but the Chicago-Milwaukee–St. Paul–Pacific Railroad achieved this with its historic route across Snoqualmie Pass. Today more than 100 miles of that route have become Iron Horse State Park, with its trail following the old railroad grade. This hike goes through deep forest and crosses high trestles with breathtaking views as it skirts the steep northern flank of Mt. Washington.
