Road 4039: Solitude Professional Review and Guide

"The day was too beautiful to stay home, but in May there was too much snow in the high country to go very far. As a compromise, Pat and I headed for Barlow Pass for an easy hike to Monte Cristo, or if there was too much snow, a simple walk to the Ice Caves below Big Four. The drive was beautiful in Robe Valley and the glistening snow made Pilchuck look like a mighty mountain. The Stillaguamish was running high, as were our expectations.

However, just beyond Silverton, everything came to a screeching halt! The road was blocked with heavy equipment replacing a bridge. (Why wasn’t there a sign back at Granite Falls stating that, due to road construction, the road would be closed at Silverton until late May?) Disgusted, we turned around and headed for snow-covered Lake 22. However, at 0.2 mile upriver from Red Bridge, we went exploring the River Road, located on the north side of the river."

We walked this trail after visiting the Ice Caves. The road was mostly over grown with tree branches hanging into the path. Not a lot to see. There are many other trails that would be better for a day walk. Although it is an easy hike. If you really want to be alone, this is the trail. Solitude is right. Just nothing else to go with it.
