Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Great ride, watch for bears

September, 2020 by gtraxler99

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.

Kulshan Creek Trail

Combine with Skagit River Walk

September, 2020 by aliciashankland_tl

This trail begins with a few confusing blocks through an industrial part of city, but then becomes its own path through a largely shady stretch that is very pleasant. On the river, you can connect with the river walk. For a mile of so of s broad boardwalk, there are nice river views, parks, playgrounds, art, casual restaurants. The trail becomes rough gravel after passing warehouses.

Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Snoqualmie to Tokul Trestle

September, 2020 by davidlee48

Walked the section between 356th st and Tokul Trestle with the dog. The 2.4 mile walk to the trestle is easy and flat, mostly shaded, and has a couple of open spots with valley views. Around 1.7 miles in you can hear range noise from the Snoqualmie Gun Club. The Tokul Trestle is amazing and high above the river below, and we passed about half a dozen bikers, runners and hikers.

Olympic Discovery Trail - Blyn to Elwha River

Port Angeles to Sequim

September, 2020 by frankterraferma

Rode 30 miles roundtrip on this trail last week of August in gorgeous weather - cool, sunny & dry. This section fo trail is not in Olympic National Park. Traverses a variety of landscapes - city, ocean front, forest & farmland. There are many sections that are not on the original rail grade so there are some climbs and descents along with a few river crossings on original trestles. On my return, I got caught in the dark. Fortunately, I had a light!!! All in all a good ride!

Interurban Trail (North)

1st long distance run

September, 2020 by matthew.a.collette

I really enjoy this trail. I only run from Lynnwood to green lake. I guess it’ll be closing until the light rail construction is finished. Great run

Cascade Trail

like a country road

Amazing, peaceful and lovely flat trail with lots of shade.

Whitehorse Trail

Whitehorse Trail: Trafton to Darrington

August, 2020 by jonannis86

Whitehorse Trail is essentially open now, but access from the popular Centennial Trail to the rail bridge west of Trafton Trailhead remains closed due to unstable soil. This isolates an otherwise hidden gem of a trail. This means that you can have 23 miles of scenic, gentle rail trail all to yourself, with the possible exception of a few fellow travelers “in the know” and local swimmers and fishers. The trail runs parallel to Oso Slide Memorial Hwy (State Rte 530) and the north fork of the Stillaguamish River. The repurposed former BNSF rail route, disused after 1990, offers solitude just off the highway, lush forest vegetation and an inviting river, a refuge from dappled sun and light rain. There are openings to spectacular views of the river and encircling mountains, abandoned mills, rustic farms and homesteads, and sometimes flashes of wildlife, and beach life. There are several planked or concrete bridges, long straightaways and shallow curves, and two, busy, no-signal highway crossings, but otherwise few notable road crossings. The trail is wide and smooth, freshly resurfaced with fine, coarse gravel suitable for road bikes in the western- and mid-sections. It’s even paved in two places, near lively Twin Bridges and serene Cicero Pond, and fronting the somber Oso Landslide Memorial site. East of the Swede Heaven Rd crossing toward Darrington, the trail narrows and is swallowed up by thick forest and dense bogs. It gets much bumpier or more muddy in season, suitable for mountain bikes. There is an easily passable (though not officially) slide area east of the rodeo and bluegrass music arenas. Nearby is a mountain bike “skills area”. Parking is offered in the mid-section of the trail north of the highway at a paved lot on Fortson Mill Rd, a dirt lot immediately off C-Post Rd, and an extensive pullout at Hazel Hole. Trailheads at Trafton (Kroeze Rd/115th, at Cloverdale Farm) on the west end and Darrington (Price St, past the IGA) to the east offer space for about a half-dozen vehicles each. There are many unnamed pullouts along the highway. Per Snohomish County rules, the multi-use trail is open to bicyclists including class 2 ebikes, hikers and horses only (no motorized vehicles). Hours are 7 am to dusk, pets must be on-leash, no fires, dumping or alcohol, and the trail doesn’t offer latrines, water, or other services at this time

Olympic Discovery Trail East - Port Townsend

Beautiful and Fun

August, 2020 by t.sq

We rode this beautiful and fun ride and enjoyed water views (the first mile) and beautiful, shaded forests the remainder 6 miles. The trail was well marked in all but one area (about 6 miles in from Port Townsend) where you ride a gravelly rural road for a very short distance. One small section through the forest is almost like single track: fun!

Olympic Discovery Trail - Blyn to Elwha River

lost in Sequim

July, 2020 by bkwelvis

I liked the trail. I started in Blyn. The first part is a little hilly and a fairly dull ride through the woods. I got lost multiple times in Sequim both coming and going. Better signage please. After that is goes through some nice rural areas and farmland. I turned around about 20 miles in because I was having a few back spasms. I missed what I’ve been told in the best part, with nice water views. I’ll ride the entire route next time. Please add better signs and directions in Sequim.

Cascade Trail

Wondeful ride up and down Cascade Trail

July, 2020 by georgesaul

Saturday, July 25, 2020 72 degrees, sunny. Gorgeous views with foothills in near background. Skagit River was beautiful and very close-by the first half of trip going up. Gravel trails were in good shape. Some to be expected potholes. Only one 1/2 mile easy detour. In 5 hours in the trail we saw only 15-ish other people. Where are they on such a gorgeous day? Everyone we encountered was very pleasant. Highly recommend for round trip or 1-way!

Interurban Trail (North)

Biked Interurban North from Greenwood Seattle to Lynnwood, July 25, 2020, and the signage is MUCH better than last time. Many useful signs pointing to nearby points of interest, and didn't lose track of the trail this time.

North Creek Trail

so so

July, 2020 by debimiller9_tl

Great for walking and the plenty of those on the trail but lots of twist and turns and can’t see around. Hard to follow and too short to bother.
