Iron Goat Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This interpretive hiking trail in the Stevens Pass historic district climbs a constant 2.2 percent grade. Kiosks guide you through a trail decorated with wildflowers and forests of ferns, alders, and evergreens.

The route offers you views of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and mountain peaks, rivers and streams, remnants of the railroad, and the 7.8-mile Cascade Tunnel. Mileage markers reflect the original railroad signs, indicating mileage to St. Paul, Minnesota. The trail is named for the logo on the Great Northern trains. Surface: Gravel with concrete binder. Location: King County, near Stevens Pass."

If you try for the out-and-back, this is a really solid, entertaining half-day hike. In the rain, it gets eerie.
