Sammamish River Trail

...if I can add to my "Cottonwood" review

May, 2023 by ron242

FYI, it's a buck to park in Lot K, the Marymoor Park trailhead. The machines accept dollar bill (no change) or credit card.

Sammamish River Trail

Cottonwoods shedding - like it’s snowing

May, 2023 by ron242

Smooth paved ride from Redmond trailhead to Bothell, and onto the Burke-Gilman there two days ago (May 26) - 24 miles up-and-back on my hybrid bike.

Allergy sufferers be aware: cottonwoods are shedding their "cotton" - the air is full of the stuff, like it's snowing lightly - not sure when it ends, but there's plenty of "cotton" still on the trees - and not sure when it began but the river is dusted in white, and there are places where the edge of the trail looks snow-drifted, thick with the stuff. Thickest in the few miles at either end of the trail.

My Friday midday ride (11:30 or so to 2) did see walkers along a few miles at the Redmond end, in Woodinville, and at the Bothell end, and other cyclists and a couple rollerskaters, but did not feel crowded, and I expressed and experienced politeness throughout.

The section north of Redmond to Woodinville is agricultural and lovely. A farmwife was just pulling in her "see the quilts" sign as I passed.

The park and arbors the trail passes through/by in Woodinville are lovely.

The first couple miles continuing west on the Burke-Gilman, in Bothell, were a dramatic change - urban, noisy, running alongside busy State Route 522.

I did not detect any odors from the river.

Not a lot of shade on this ride, so sunscreen up if you're riding midday.

There is one curlyqueue of tight turns on the Redmond end. A couple narrow bridges at either end.

Trail intersections are remarkably well marked - the once when not, I needed to just follow the trail's yellow-marked center line.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great Allegheny Trail southeast of Pittsburgh?

April, 2023 by eshawger

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.

Interurban Trail (North)

Opinion

October, 2022 by tristanhaije

If I can walk anywhere, I can go anywhere

Interurban Trail (Bellingham)

NOT wheelchair friendly…

October, 2022 by deansmith4

…At least not at the south end. The surface is irregular gravel with rocks large enough to knock you out of your chair. Barely wide enough for a chair but not for passing bikes.

Cascade Trail

Cascade Trail

September, 2022 by diane82256

I loved this trail. We had access to this trail right outside of our Thousand Trails Campground. So peaceful with very little traffic. I got on the trail near Birdsview and went east. If you went west you were weaving in and out of traffic on a busy 2 lane Hwy. most of the way to Sedro-Wooly.

Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Fall City to Tokul Tunnel Trail Ends with stairs

September, 2022 by pcraze

We parked at SVT trail parking in Fall City to ride the trail towards North Bend, but found out that the trail ends in just 3 miles when you reach the Tokul Tunnel. Next to the Tokul tunnel we saw a very fit young male cyclist walking his light weight rode bike down a very steep dirt hill to reach the SVT. On the other side of the tunnel are a steep set of wood stairs with no hand rail. I’m a 4’-9” woman with a heavy mountain bike so I didn’t attempt the stairs or hill. We thought it was best to turn around and ride back towards Carnation. Beautiful shady ride in forest

Tolt Pipeline Trail

Some crazy steep hills

September, 2022 by jason100

Most the trail is level and easy going, however the farther west you go into Woodinville and Bothell, approaching I-405, the hills get treacherous because they are very steep, up to a 22% grade in some places, and some have major roads cross at the bottom. I rode the entire length staring in Duvall and ending at I-405 on a brand new fat tire eBike with hydraulic disk breakers and I felt like I was pushing everything to the limits. Without the eBike and good breaks I would either be walking or avoiding those hills.
