A quick visit to the The Foss River Train Trestle is a great way to start your stay at Tye Haus. Located practically in our own back yard, the trestle is just a short drive up Foss River Road (Road 68) which is just across the street from the main entrance to our cabin community.
We've tried to pinpoint the timing of these trains and they appear to either go up or down about once per hour. It's definitely worth the wait for one coming up at a slow pace. Have your camera ready.
One half mile past the Skykomish Ranger Station on the Stevens Pass Highway (US-2), turn south on the Foss River Road (Road 68). The pavement ends in 1.1 miles, and beyond that be alert for occasional potholes.
Continue on Road 68 and in about 1.3 miles, pass under a railroad trestle. Just beyond the trestle, turn left and park your car. If you can see a railroad signal, you're in the right place!
