Lime Kiln Trail Hike, March 10, 2021 Trip Report

It was a beautiful, sunny, crisp day for CAI/PNW’s first hike of 2021 after a year of dealing with Covid-19 and not being able to hike together.

A portion of the trail goes along the historic Everett/Monte Cristo Railroad, built in 1892-1893 and abandoned in 1933. Continuing along the trail, it makes a slight rise then drops down into the Robe Canyon where you begin to hear water. Getting closer to the limekiln, the sound of rushing water gets louder; eventually the Stillaguamish River comes into view. This is a great lowland hike during the winter months. We were fortunate and found the perfect lunch spot along the river bank.

It was a great day; especially to once again be reunited with our friends from CAI PNW!

Fellow hikers included: Clarence Elstad, Toni Williams, Ida Callahan, Cam Bradley, Glen Strachan and his son, Brennan, and hike leader, Gerlinde Gruber.
