Located east of Granite Falls, Washington, just off the Mountain Loop Scenic Byway, Robe Canyon Historic Park blends a rich history of the mining and railroading era with the natural beauty of the South Fork of the Stillaguamish River thundering through narrow Robe Canyon.

Since 1995 when Snohomish County acquired the first phase of Robe Canyon, volunteers have maintained the Old Robe Trail.  In 2002, volunteers continued the tradition, led by Volunteers for Outdoor Washington, performing annual maintenance, installing log-railings, and relocating a section of trail lost to the river's winter rampages.  Yet, the major volunteer effort was reserved for construction of the new Lime Kiln Trail at the west end of the park.  Continuing the work started in 1998, over 90 volunteers invested 262 volunteer work days last year.  Finally, in the late fall, trail workers reached a significant milestone: the site of the historic railway bridge spanning the South Fork of the Stillaguamish River across from Tunnel #1.

 

   This site is funded by Stillaguamish Citizens' Alliance, which has led efforts to protect
Robe Canyon and the natural heritage of the Stillaguamish basin since 1992.  Many thanks!
