Eastside Rail Corridor Trail

No Dogs except Service Animals!!!

September, 2021 by sdouglas1126

Beautiful trail and very well maintained park. I started the trail at the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park. Got a little over a mile in and the trail is closed in this end for restructure. I was a little disappointed. Other than that it’s a great trail to walk. Paved and flat. A few slight inclines, but easy enough for people just starting out. It’s a good workout.

Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Be advised of a steep set of stairs. poor signage in some places

September, 2021 by myflotsam

An important detail of the Snoqualmie River Trail is that there is a steep set of stairs (approximately 30 steps) just a few hundred yards South of the town of Snoqualmie. An able-bodied person will be able to lift their bike up or down these stairs, but a 60-70 electric bike will be a difficult lift if the rider is solo (if riding with others two people could lift the electric bikes one at a time). But a set of stairs on a bike trail needs to be pointed out, yes?! Hello! Also, in this same area when heading South the signage is poor (in some cases absent). Otherwise, a beautiful trail, many fantastic bridges, packed gravel/dirt trail surface in very good condition, and not much traffic. Recommended.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

Great ride from Rattle Snake to the Renslow Trestle

August, 2021 by jamesdeanreeves

This is an awesome ride from the westernmost start at Rattlesnake Ledge all the way to the Renslow Trestle east of Ellensburg.

There's a few miles around Easton where someone in their "infinite wisdom" put the gravel on the trail so heavy that it made riding difficult, but it's doable.

Then there's the sand that the Army spread claiming "habitat restoration" from the Renslow Trestle across the last 20 miles to the Columbia River totally destroys the joy. Right, pure sand... does the Army think this is the Saharan Desert? To me, it seems pretty clear the Army did that in hopes to discourage bikers from crossing that section - you'll need fat tires to have any hope to ride it, and even then it will be a battle.

Cushman Trail

FUN SHORT RIDE FOR E-BIKE RIDERS

August, 2021 by scratssun

Challenging as a first-time user. We found this trail a bit difficult to follow when riding from the north end by Home Depot as there were sections where we were off the trail on city streets and were unfamiliar with the area. We enjoyed the big hills up and the long rides down. However, on the return the trail was much easier to follow. We suggest previewing the map closely before starting. Smooth surface which was great and well maintained!

Olympic Discovery Trail

Beautiful Rides

August, 2021 by mrskpico

We rode two sections, in Port Angeles and the Spruce Railroad section along the north shore of Lake Crescent. The Port Angeles section is great, well maintained, and really beautiful as you skirt the shore. There was one section of asphalt before it curved out to the bird reserve that was really bumpy, but otherwise we really enjoyed the ride. Everyone on the path was really friendly and the weather was great. The Spruce Railroad Trail was a lot of fun. The first section has a lot of walkers, dogs, and kids, so many that we started to think it was a bad idea. However, once you go through the tunnel and pass the Devil's Punch Bowl, the walkers mostly fall off (stopping to eat, swim, or go back), and we practically had the trail to ourselves. Again, everyone on the trail was friendly and courteous, and the ride is stunningly beautiful, especially along the lake shore. As we got further away from the water, I did get paranoid about cougars and bears, but that's just typical me. The ride was great fun, and again, the weather was really pleasant, even in the middle of August. We highly recommend the ODT.

Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail

Soft gravel and not very scenic from either side of CleElum. Rode 12 miles each direction. Could not sightsee as it was difficult to manage.

Burke-Gilman Trail

Great Trail but

August, 2021 by n69rq98tkx

Now don’t get me wrong this is a great trail! The length is stellar. The trail gives the user a great insight to the users and the community it stretches across. I just completed it today. Observations. Why is there a blank spot on a map and lack of signage between ballard locks to shilshole ave? I only figured this out from a local company in the area. Good job Ped2Go! The trail lacks maintenance and care between UW to Lake Forest. There is alot of tree roots pushing up the trail. I can’t imagine how many near accidents this causes. When a cyclist gets to Inverness Ct north to Blythe Park the trail shows sign of care and upkeep! But still a great trail to do in a day ¿

East Lake Sammamish Trail

views of McMansions

August, 2021 by bobbiesal

While the trail is paved, there is construction for a chunk, requiring riding on a busy road. If you want to see a bunch of wealthy peoples’ homes -this is the trail for you. If you’re wanting a trail with lake views or access-this doesn’t offer either.

Lake Boren Esplanade

smooth & flat~

July, 2021 by tranguyennn

Great trail for skateboarding. It’s mainly flat, so great for coasting. There’s a few crosswalks that you have to stop for, so be aware and cautious. You can also walk down to Lake Boren Park. Even tho it’s next to a busy street, I feel pretty safe on it.
