Stevens Pass Greenway

Follow the route of an old Great Northern Railway line while clinging to the banks of the Skykomish and Wenatchee rivers. On this leisurely slice of the Cascade Loop, travelers will wind through tiny hamlets and discover what travel used to be like before all the best places were bypassed.

Key points of interest:

  • Everett – From a hike through the woods or calm walk by the waterfront to a great show at Everett’s wonderful local theatres, the beautiful and historic city of Everett has a lot to offer. Visitors can enjoy everything from the warm, sandy beaches of Jetty Island to a fascinating trip to Funko, maker of the famous Funko Pop! figures. In the summer months, catch some minor league baseball with the Everett Aquasox, affiliate of the Seattle Mariners or attend an exciting Everett Silvertips hockey game in the fall and winter months. This is just a sampling of what Everett has to offer visitors and locals alike.
  • Wallace Falls State Park – Wallace Falls State Park is a 4,735-acre camping park along the shores of the Wallace River, Wallace Lake, Jay Lake, Shaw Lake and the Skykomish River. Located on the west side of the Cascade Mountains, the park features a 265-foot waterfall, old-growth coniferous forests and fast-moving rivers and streams.
  • Wenatchee – Wenatchee is located at the confluence of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers and seated by the foothills and towering peaks of the North Cascades. Come see the “Apple Capital of the World” and its many orchards. The 11-mile Apple Capital Loop Trail is a paved route that takes you across the Columbia River and back again, Ohme Gardens is a lush garden oasis perched on a hill overlooking the valley, and Rocky Reach Dam’s Discovery Center is a newly renovated experience, where you can steer a paddleboat down the river! Visitors can fly into this region of the Cascade Loop at Pangborn Memorial Airport.
