Cascade Trail

Nice surprise ride out of concrete

May, 2022 by ynzwncyxv8

We did not know that this trail was there and were in concrete. We ping the bird view diner but did not want to take the main road on our bikes. To our pleasant surprise we found this trail. It is a well maintained gravel path. Only issue we hit was a bit where it had washed out but there were planks just off the trail for us to cross on our bikes. Planning to do the full length in the future.

Interurban Trail (North)

You can't walk the maple road part of the trail, you will be too close to traffic on the bridge. You should only go on a bike for this part.

Whitehorse Trail-Heads Up!!

April, 2022 by madronameadows

The trail is closed from a wash out starting in Arlington. We parked in the first designated parking area 11 miles East of Arlington. We headed West towards Arlington to see where it was closed and why. Shortly after starting out we came to an intersection of a county road just before the first highway crossing. We were greeted by a BIG white-possibly Pyrenees Dog which came after us barking, growling and snapping at our legs. The rest of our ride way uneventful but we had to pass the area with the dog to get back to our car. We luckily have electric bikes and when we came back to the area the dog was standing in the middle of the trail. We used our power assist to speed past the dog which came after us but couldn't keep up.

SR 520 Trail

Very nice

March, 2022 by gerald.hawkins

This is a very nice trail. Be aware of a few things: Steel connector plates at fairly regular intervals make a jarring bump. On very nice days, the trail can be crowded and you have to keep speed down. The trail is loud, right next to traffic lanes with a “Jersey barrier” separating bikes from cars. Strong cross winds can make this trip unpleasant during bad weather. And although the bridge seems very flat from a car, there are actually modest climbs at each end. The trail connects nicely to the Lake Washington trail, but the Montlake Bridge crossing to UW and the Burke-Gilman trail is tight. The connection toward Lake Union is difficult to locate and can be unusable.

Cross Kirkland Corridor

Excellent

March, 2022 by gerald.hawkins

This is a wonderful trail. The southern end is a little vague for access. Around Totem Lake, the trail is under construction (2020-2022 or ?) and a bypass is necessary. The northern end of the trail also does not connect well into other trails, ending a couple of miles from the Sammamish River Trail, but the busy & fast NE 124th connects the two with a good bike lane.

Burke-Gilman Trail

Great trail with a couple glitches

March, 2022 by gerald.hawkins

The Burke-Gilman Trail is excellent and was important in creating the concept of Rails to Trails. The trail is all good but could be better in spots. The trail is missing a section between Ballard and the UW. Don’t expect to find a parking space in Ballard. Between UW and Bothell, the trail is very good except that in many places the bumps (from roots) and cracks in the pavement are excessive. In Bothell, the Burke-Gilman transitions directly into the Sammamish River Trail, which goes to Woodinville and Redmond. One of the most convenient parking areas for the Burke-Gilman Trail is actually the Wilmot Gateway Park on the Sammamish River Trail. One wish (besides fixing bumps) is that there was a convenient place to charge ebikes on the trail.

Snohomish County Centennial Trail

Excellent trail, great conditions

March, 2022 by gerald.hawkins

I rode the entire trail, up and back. The surface of the trail is nearly all in excellent shape. The grades are mild and none are very long. The street crossings in Snohomish are mostly very easy. Further up, in Arlington, the street crossings are not quite as safe. The trail has plenty of places to stop and restrooms at key locations. The trail passes through some very pretty forest and farm country. There are markets and coffee shops in two or three places. There are several excellent places for a lunch stop. I spotted eagles twice. To avoid the traffic on the Snohomish end, consider parking at Machias Road access (Three Lakes exit from Highway 2). Going up and back from Machias or Pilchuck parking areas gives approximately 50 miles up and back instead of 61.

Best Trail ever

Sammamish River Trail

Daily Commute

October, 2021 by ktfamily14

I ride this trail daily on my bike from Redmond to Bothell and enjoy the scenery no matter rain or shine. People along the trail are very considerate and friendly giving way and providing help when needed. The maintenance teams blow the leaves off the trail early in the morning and keep the bathrooms clean. This is a great trail to enjoy miles of pavement without any cars.

Trail Map Incorrect on Traillink.com - No Trespassing on 133rd St.

October, 2021 by equavita

This is a great trail; however, contrary to how it is currently drawn on this site, it does not include 133rd St. (which connects to W. Snoqualmie Valley Road). 133rd is a private residential road. Everyone using the trail - bikers, pedestrians, etc. need to respect the signs that clearly indicate the end of the trail at the beginning of 133rd. Otherwise, you are trespassing on a private road and are subjecting yourself to possible prosecution. To get to W. Snoqualmie Valley Road from the trail, you must exit the trail farther west at 232nd and make your way south to Novelty. Turn left (east) on Novelty. This will take you down the hill to W. Snoqualmie Valley Road.

Olympic Discovery Trail

late September ride

September, 2021 by wreinsel

Started at the Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles and went five miles towards Sequim. Picturesque and fair maintenance I’d say. This trail could be a gem with a little TLC. Going the other direction towards Ediz Hook is through an industrial area without much visual interest.
