There was hardly anyone on this trail, so I'm kinda compelled to tell you it was horrible in an attempt to keep it as is and all to myself! (insert hideous laughter). But as the last poster indicated, it is a hidden treasure that is barely used. From Swede Heaven west, it is all packed gravel, and a few paved areas. East it is not maintained, but totally ride-able with a hybrid - don't need mnt-bikes. They made it sound like the trail disappeared or got impassable with "swallowed up by thick forest and dense bogs", but we quickly figured out that is on the sides - not IN the trail - duh! I see that the county has applied for permits to fix the washed out area near Arlington, so maybe that will happen next year! When it does, and if/when they gravel the section between Swede Heaven and Darrington, this will be a totally awesome trail (really, it already is!!!)
Most of the trail was covered in garbage and debris including shopping carts EVERYWHERE! There were several homeless camps and tents throughout the trail and this tunnel on 19th street with piles of rotting garbage big enough to fill a dump truck! It was discussing! I even rode past a few used syringe needles! Very unsafe and horrible to see. Disappointed in our community.
This trail is trying its best. It does have its bad moments, like being poorly marked and running alongside a busy road. We all have our faults. I appreciate the quirks and under rated ship yard, and industry views. Take the good with the bad, and set your biases aside and enjoy the down to earth, no fuss no muss trail.
I really love the trail. Well maintained and great countryside views
Nice trail pretty views the only problem is the trail stops in places and can’t find where it starts back up. Also detours .
There is one short switch-back, and one short steep section but otherwise very doable for anyone.
Trail was pretty on either side of the switchbacks, but I will Never do the 80 ft up gravel switchbacks again. Old lady pushing rad bike, huffy and puffing isn’t pretty. Next time we’ll go to the Alice Lake trailhead.
Started at Duvall, rode 18 miles to Tokul tunnel on Labor Day. The part from Duvall to Carnation is the least pretty, so I would start at Carnation next time. I did see one adult bear scooting across the trail just in front of me before I got to Fall City.
Trail in excellent shape, not very busy.
Currently under construction and fenced off.
Looks like a great trail, but it appears to be closed for renovations. Not sure how much of it is closed, but the trailhead is under construction.
Started out at Renton Community Center and headed south. I wasn’t aware of the detour near the trestle which meant riding on the sidewalk along 169 for about a mile or so. Thankfully it wasn’t crowded but was a bit nerve wracking riding back with my 5 year old on the wide walk against oncoming traffic going 50mph - was relieved we didn’t have to share the sidewalk at all. We rode about 5 miles and then turned around. Overall really nice - virtually empty today maybe due to holiday weekend or bc so much sun exposure?
We were looking forward to trying out the ERC today since we were short on time but wanted to get in a ride. We arrived at Newcastle to find that the trail is closed for paving for the 2 miles bet Newcastle and Seahawks training facility. Riders are using on-road detour but hills were prohibitive for my new rider and we prefer trails to shared roads for kiddo’s safety. Decided to head to Cedar River Trail instead (which also had a detour but a shorter one on sidewalk)
