The Iron Goat Trail traces the route of the historic, long-gone Great Northern Railway line through Washington's beautiful Stevens Pass. This compact guidebook describes the difficult history of this twelve-mile stretch of railway, which was a vital link to western Washington from 1890 to 1929, as it guides hikers past the many remnants of this piece of American history. Under construction since 1992, the completed trail will be formally dedicated in the fall of 1999. This updated edition includes the newest sections of the trail, along with lists of plants and birds likely to be seen from the trail, nearby places of interest, and a bibliography of historical references on the region.

Volunteers for Outdoor Washington and USDA Forest Service, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest teamed up in 1987 to research possibilities for a trail on the old Great Northern route. After five years of background work, and six years of trail building by VOW, the USFS, and hundreds of volunteers, the Iron Goat Trail, rich in history and scenic beauty, is now a reality.
