This Abandoned Railway Hike In Washington Is A Historic Treasure

Tucked away in Northeast Washington sits Ferry County, an underrated — and scarcely populated — part of the state. Ferry County is loaded with local railroad history, and it’s where you’ll find the impressive Ferry County Rail Trail. This 25-mile trail showcases this part of the state at its finest while paying homage to our past.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

The Ferry County Rail Trail is a must-see for all Washingtonians. But if you’re a bit short on time, you may want to choose one of these trails instead.
