Hwy 2 east of Skykomish. Necklace Valley is a fragile sub-alpine valley with extensive meadows. As you walk up the valley, your senses will be delighted with the moss-covered trees and rushing streams. The work will be doing early season trail maintenance including brushing, drainage cleaning and tread repair. If we get that done we will move on to converting old, slippery puncheon (boardwalk) into turnpike structures (raised, hardened tread) a couple of miles from the trailhead.
Situated in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, the first 1.5 miles follow an old railroad grade through lush forest with lots of moss and rushing water. Once crossing the river at milepost 5.0, the trail becomes very steep and rough, climbing 2,550 feet in 2.2 miles.
