Let's hike the Iron Goat trail on Friday, June 20th! It is full of history and has wildflowers too. "The trail follows part of the Great Northern Railway which reached Seattle in 1893. The trail takes its name from the railroad's logo, a mountain goat. The loop follows along the original railway for 4 miles, and also uses two connecting trails that were built by VOW. On the trail you will find several tunnels and trestles. Many of them have collapsed and are now unsafe so the trail builders bypassed the tunnels and built new bridges. There is much scenery to take in here, including Deception Creek valley and the area of Stevens Pass."
**** Northwest Forest Pass is Required ****
It will take about 2 hours to drive there and we will be car-pooling
Round-trip = 6.3 miles
Elevation gain = 700 feet
