This short interpretive trail follows the original route of the Great Northern Railway. The trail stays in forest most of the way and skirts the perimeter of Nason Creek. The trail is flat and well marked. There are interpretive brochures & kiosk at the trailhead to help explain the natural and cultural history of the area.
Directions to Trailhead
From Leavenworth, start your odometer after you pass the gas station on the corner of Icicle Road and Highway 2 West. Drive 20 miles West on Highway 2. On the right side of the Highway you will find a sign for the Bygone Byways trail. This trail is only accessible from westbound Highway 2. If traveling from Highway East go past the Stevens Pass Nordic Center (5.7 miles from Stevens Pass) and continue on Highway 2 until it joins back up with westbound Highway 2. Turn around and follow Highway 2 West a short while to the trailhead.
