Photograph the Foss River Trestle

Rate this Adventure Washington Foss Trestle Pull-Off

Added by Rowan Clark

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.
