Historical Hike on the Lime Kiln Trail this Saturday

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Join us on a hearty hike through the Lime Kiln Trail in Granite Falls this Saturday, May 4th at 8:00am.  The six mile hike explores the mossy forests, meandering trails and hidden artifacts along the old railroad and logging roads on the way to the Lime Kiln.

The trail was recently constructed in the Robe Canyon Historical Park and is an excellent hiking option for adults of all ages who are steady on their feet and looking for a great workout. Signs at the trailhead and along the trail tell the story of the railroad built in 1892 that serviced the mines and logging industry in the early part of the century. The 20 foot Lime Kiln, located at the end of the trail, was used to cook limestone and remains with many artifacts of the era for viewing. The trail offers beautiful views of second growth forests, Robe Canyon and the Stillaguamish River, which should be roaring this time of year.  This trip is offered through the Shoreline Parks and Recreation Department.

Cost for the hike is $34 and includes transportation and a trip leader to guide you through the trails.  Pre-registration is required, we’ll meet at the Spartan Recreation Center at 8:00am. Sign up through Shoreline Parks and Recreation at 206-801-2600 or online (course barcode #64221)
