Milepost 6.4 Milepost 6.9
The Index-Galena Road is located along the Skykomish River in the Mount Baker – Snoqualmie National Forest in southeast Snohomish County. During Fall 2006
it was severely damaged by flooding at eight separate mileposts. Six of the damaged sites have been repaired. B&A photos of repaired sites. The road
remains closed approximately 5.5 miles east of the Town of Index. It was
washed out between mile posts 6.4 and 6.9.
Snohomish County proposes to reestablish connection between the east and
west sections of roadway, and is proceeding with the design and environmental assessment process.
Access is currently available from the east end of Index-Galena Road, via US2-Beckler River Road-Jack's Pass, to milepost 6.9.
From the east the road opens to National Forest lands for general recreation, camping and mineral claims along the North Fork Skykomish, Salmon Creek and
Silver Creek drainage basins. Troublesome Creek and San Juan Campground
are also accessible from the east. The Forest Service has a gate on the Forest Service road past Troublesome Creek. See contact information below.
