Monroe proposes 7-mile link with Centennial Trail

MONROE — Monroe is gearing up to pitch expansion of the Centennial Trail across the Snohomish River floodplain. The 30-mile trail now stretches largely unbroken from the Skagit County line to Snohomish on an abandoned railroad bed. Plans are in the works to extend it south to Woodinville.
