I ran this trail for the Jack and Jill Marathon. It is hard packed and the views are wonderful. Gradual downhill that you don't realize until you get to the very end of the trail. Bring lots of water and food but well worth travelling through the old railway tunnels. Bring a flashlight, it is dark in there.

This trail is groomed for cross country skiing in the winter and goes along the Keechelus reservoir. There are some primitive campgrounds along the trail. In the summer the trail is open to hikers and bikers and the old Snoqualmie Tunnel is open to both and is a nice bike ride down to the Cedar River Watershed. Be aware that... More

this is a great resource. you can travel across the state but realize that this parallels the interstate for much of the way so do not expect peacefulness. there are many sights you will not see any other way. for a easy trip park at the pass and travel down to north bend to a second car.

We walked through the tunnel (almost alone) and back (others, too) It was cool and drippy in places. We could almost walk without a light as we could see the dot of light way at the other end. We also bicycled through a few years ago.

I thought this park was Iron Horse State Park. 2.5 mile hike in a tunnel very interesting. Nice and cool anytime. Be sure and have a good light you will need it. Actually did this hike 2x on different days. Good parking and restrooms at trail head.

An old Railroad Line, flat, not paved, but good enough for fat tire bikes that winds around beautiful lakes, mountains and forests. Interstate I-90 runs along it for easy access. Parking is available, the nicest is at the Snoqualmie Pass exit at Hyak. Restrooms are available there and along the trail. That entrance is close to an abandoned RR tunnel... More

Participated in the Jack and Jill Marathon at the end of July. Had seen a youtube video of the old railroad bridges and tunnel but it was just not the same.The tunnel was worth being so creeped out about. We were told to bring our own headlamps for the 2 mile tunnel glad we did. The tunnel is damp, dark... More

The detour from Mile Post 54 to 62 on the Iron Horse Trail is not suitable for road bikes. It is one thing to have an unpaved trail. The Great Allegheny Passage and the Sparta-Elroy are unpaved. It is another to have long stretches of inches-deep unconsolidated gravel separated by patches of deep sand. Bicycle tourists do not have an... More

This trail happens to have easy access from our front yard with plenty of colorful flowers and green grass to welcome hikers and bikers. The trail goes on forever and if you make it to the third bridge you have biked or hiked well!! There are always interesting views of the mossy trees, mountains and river below and animals can...
