The payoff for a little scrambling is the wildflowers in bloom now, nice views of the river canyon and a hike through history along what remains of the Everett & Monte Cristo Railway. The Lime Kiln trail and the hike into Monte Cristo also give glimpses into the E&MC RR's past.
At only 2 1/4 miles round trip and just a couple hundred feet elevation gain, this is also a nice "add on" if you finish early while hiking one of the many trails in the South Fork Stillaguamish valley.
