Want to learn more fun facts about Snohomish County heritage? Then grab your walking shoes or hop on a bike – or put the kids in the stroller and make your way down the Centennial Trail, Sept 13th from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. to learn local history along the former tribal route and early-century transportation corridor.

The Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission will offer activities for kids, hands-on interactive exhibits and a chance to touch historic artifacts at four different sites along the 30 miles of historic rail line.
The event is free.

Specific activities are located at these four trailheads:

– Bryant -26804 SR9, Arlington
– Machias – 1624 Virginia St., Snohomish
– Snohomish – Pine and Maple, Snohomish

“The Centennial Trail History Walk will be a fun way to learn about our local heritage, said Historic Preservation Commissioner, Chris Jenkins. We wanted to offer an experience that would make learning Sno Co. history more
engaging and because the trail has such a rich history of its own – a discovery walk on the trail allows the participants to put facts into context.”
