2-3 miles, 200 feet elevation gain.
An important road link in the west-central Cascades was severed by flooding in 2006, but now has finally been rebuilt, giving much easier access to the upper reaches of the North Fork Skykomish River Valley. Let's go explore that territory, which has been overlooked and underused for so long. We'll drive the new section of road, and take several short hikes and scenic photo stops to enjoy what the area has to offer. We'll check out the Troublesome Creek Trail and campground, explore the site of the old mining settlement of Galena, get a good look at the rugged and seldom-visited mountains in the area, and walk along the spectacular riverfront in the town of Index.
