Sky Valley Washington refers to the towns and valley between Monroe and Skykomish, Washington, United States, where the Skykomish River flows west through its valley and converges with the Snoqualmie River to make the Snohomish River. The towns from east to west include Skykomish, Baring, Grotto, Index, Gold Bar, Startup, Sultan and Monroe.

The valley communities were founded in the mid-19th century by homesteaders whose livelihoods included logging, mining, farming, and in the late 1890s, the Great Northern Railway.
