It was a last minute decision to hike the Cascade Trail, mainly because of the blustery weather. The winds were so bad that we decided not to be in the forest since the danger of trees falling was much higher.
The Cascade Trail is about 22 miles long, and goes from Sedro Woolley to Concrete, in Washington State. We started the hike at a parking area just outside the Sedro Woolley city limits. The views from the trail are of farmland and mountains. The trail is fairly well shielded from highway, for the section we hiked.
Very few people were on the trail, but we attributed that to the poor weather. The only issue we had was that there is a 4 hour parking limit at the parking areas? I don’t get it? Definitely worth hiking on again, and we’ll be back!
