The Centennial Trail is a paved trail for walking, bicycling, hiking, and horseback riding, and accessible to persons of all physical abilities. It was built on the old Burlington-Northern railroad line and includes 30 miles of completed trail within Snohomish County.
Development of the trail began in 1989 during the state's centennial, hence the name. The Centennial Trail skirts the eastern Lake Stevens city limits, with 1.3 miles of the trail within the city limits. The trail has several formal and informal trailheads within or adjacent to the City and is managed by Snohomish County.
