The Centennial Trail is a paved trail that follows the original route of the Seattle, Lake Shore & Eastern Railway, parts of which were later acquired by the Northern Pacific and Burlington Northern. The trail runs 30.5 miles from the town of Snohomish to the border of Skagit County. After the railroad corridor became inactive, local efforts began for a trail in 1989, the year of the state's centennial celebration.

The Centennial Trail runs alongside the location of the Hartford Depot. A replica of the depot stands on the site of the original.
