Image #2 is part of a stream gauge system. East of Maple Valley, the trail is on purely Milwaukee Road grade that eventually crosses Snoqualmie Pass on what is now the John Wayne Trail on its way east. The Columbia and Puget Sound leaves the Cedar River trail and heads south to Black Diamond at Maple Valley, just west of the Hwy 18 overpass. The C&PS line to Hobart and Taylor heads up roughly parallel to Hwy 18 from Maple Valley.


David - Thanks for info. I have updated the post accordingly. Lesson learned. No more speculation.


There's actually a cache at the stream gauge. That's how I know that it's a stream gauge... :-)




David - Thanks. Once I get through our current city budget crises, will look forward to getting back to thinking about geocaching. I really appreciate your insight.
