Experience some seclusion close to town with a viewpoint of a wooden train trestle over the Foss River, Skykomish
Traveling east from Seattle on Highway 2, take a right hand turn onto Foss River Road (Road 68) just after the township of Skykomish. The pavement ends in 1.1 miles, beyond that be cautious of potholes. Continue along this road for a further 1.3 miles, at which point you will pass under a railroad trestle. Immediately beyond the trestle make a left turn and park your car. If you can see a railroad signal, you’re in the right place!
Note: The freight train passes over the trestle hourly (give or take), so bare this in mind if you’re staking out for the perfect photo opportunity.

After the long drive down FR 26, turn onto FR 2680. 6 miles down the road, you'll see what slightly resembles a trail to your left.

You can stat this adventure at one of two trailheads. I suggest using the lower of the two. The start of the trail ascends through a forest of old growth pines with periodic views of Mt Washington.
