Robe Canyon Historic Trail


Map of the Park

Other Link Park Locator


  1. River Access


A 970.19-acre property along the Stillaguamish River, accessed via the Mountain Loop Highway east of Granite Falls.

Hike the mile-long trail from the road to the river for a breathtaking view of Robe Canyon. Only minutes from the town of Granite Falls, Robe Canyon has the look and feel of somewhere much more remote. The return hike can be a challenge. Portions of the trail are inaccessible during the rainy season.  Please note:  Due to a rock slide, the trail ends at mile 1.1.  Access to the tunnels, which are located beyond mile 1.1, is not safe or legal.  

Park History

940.19 acres acquired from John Hancock Corporation and Trillium Corporation between 1995 and 1997 with Conservation Futures Funds and State of Washington funding assistance. This includes a portion of the historic route of travel of the famous Monte Cristo Railroad. An additional 30 acres was purchased in 2001.

Future Plans

  • Developed walking trails
  • Historic interpretive signage
