Snowshoe Keechelus Lake - John Wayne trail (Intermediate/Beginn­er)


Well pardner, if you're looking for a gentle, but rustic outing, John Wayne can help you out. The old railroad right-of-way that runs across the state is known as the John Wayne State Park, while the actual physical trail (the old railbed) is the Iron Horse Trail. But whether you call it the John Wayne Trail, the Iron Horse Trail, or the Keechelus Lake Trail, you'll find this a great route to enjoy with the family. The flat, well-graded trail is perfect for kids of all ages.

    I'll meet at ravenna but if no ride available I can drive to 2nd p&r. I can drive to trailhead but my tiny 2-door hatchback is not ideal for carpooling. But it's an option.
