A nice 6-7 mile hike in a mossy wooded forest area with small waterfalls and artifacts. A roaring river nearby. Nice trail but a little muddy at times. Bring water and a snack. Elevation changes but gradual.

Hiked along here in September. Well marked trail through a wooded area. Good place to 'bird by ear' too. There is a small parking lot right by the trailhead.

Not a lot of elevation which is nice, just in the beginning you have to go so obviously you have to go a little up when you go back. But really beautiful with the greenery, and great hike along a river, and kind of short so it's easy.

I have done this hike many times over the years and enjoyed it every time. The trail has changed over the years due to many wash outs and land slides. The trail is a little treacherous in some spots as it runs along a very swift river and the ground is a little loose. The trail is about a mile... More

This is a nice easy walk for anyone who is in average health. Small hills and fairly level terrain make this a good day hike. beautiful views and historical artifacts along the trail almost takes you back to the days that the railroad was operating. Take water and snacks to make your trip most enjoyable. Remember to lock all valuables... More

This is a nice walk for a picnic if you don't go past the first tunnel, just don't forget about the switchbacks on the way back. But if you want to explore further the trail is closed and can be dangerous, when I was younger I would go there every month and see how many tunnels I could make it... More

Old Robe Trail has some fun tunnels dating back to the time they used rail for mining in the canyons. The tunnels and rail ties are still present. The trail starts nicely enough as it drops into the canyon where there are campsites. Getting from the camp sites along the river to the rest of the trail can be tricky.... More

Although some of the further tunnels are closed due to wash outs, this hike is a quick, easy, family friendly hike any time of year. First cleared by Troop 43 of Lake Stevens in the 60's, the Robe Canyon Trail is now a huge draw for many hikers. The river is amazing at high water and plunges through the canyon... More

Once at trail head, it is very flat and open. You will see a "trail advisory" marker. Trail changes from this point, you descend into the canyon. Can't really see much, other than blood sucking skeeters. Once the trail levels out you can hear the roar of the Stillaguamish River. When river becomes visible, this is when you may want... More
