East Lake Sammamish Trail

Lovely Trail Ride

July, 2024 by ron242

The southern trailhead of the East Lake Sammamish Trail is at NW Gilman & the east leg of 4th Ave NW in Issaquah. The east leg of 4th Ave NW from Gilman is a one-way, one-lane street with a lane of free parking along its west side. Other cyclists were also using this line of parking. The trail itself, just to the east, is (finally) asphalt for its entire length.

The trail makes two busy street crossings with traffic lights shortly on - then that's it for busy street crossings until you get to the north end.

Just past the I-90 double underpass, there's a trail entrance on the right to the 4.8-mile Issaquah-Preston Trail; it's now on my list to check out on my next visit.

1.8 or 1.9 miles from the trailhead is the entrance to Sammamish State Park at the south end of the lake, where there are bathrooms. For the next seven miles, I spotted only a portapotty or two.

The trail from here, the length of the lake, is pretty lovely. While as other viewers note, the trail is mostly lined with 4-car-garage homes (and their two-story boat docks), there's considerably more lake view than the north end of the Burke-Gilman Trail provides of Lake Washington. It's urban but I found the lake views charming. Benches appear along the trail every mile or so, some with views of the lake.

My ride was on a Monday in mid-July, in sub-70° weather (glad for a long-sleeved T under my cycling jersey). There was little traffic, either cycling or pedestrians.

The two apple trees on the east side of the trail about a mile or two north of the State Park were laden with apples - but not ripe yet. But there were tons of blackberries along the trail ripe for the picking.

While you cross lots of home-access streets, much as along the north end of the Burke-Gilman, here, all of them have stop signs, both ways, to protect you from vehicles. I'm always watchful, but it’s a straight through for cyclists the length of the lake.

The length of the lake: if you're like me, you'll be remarking to yourself about just how long it is!

While much of the lakeside trail parallels the Sammamish Lake Parkway, there’s a layer of green between trail and Parkway, and probably half the time the parkway is up the hill 10 or 20 feet above the trail. I was afraid I would encounter the terrible din of traffic that plagues the Cedar River Trail, but here I wasn't bothered.

At 8.9 miles from the south trailhead is Sammamish Landing, a public park and swimming dock, where there's a restroom building above the trail on the east side.

At 9.9 miles, a left takes you onto the Marymoor Connector Trail, with I think at least three bathroom buildings off the parking lots along the 1.6 mile ride west that connects to the Sammamish River Trail.

Continuing on the East Lake Sammamish Trail, the trail is blocked .5 miles beyond the Connector - looks like a busy street ahead where they're wanting you to take bit of a detour for a safer crossing but I think this is the terminus? Don't know - turned around here. I would note that there’s a shopping center on the east directly adjacent to the trail. Special note for you Californians: I spotted a rare-in-WA Peet’s Coffee here!

Yelm Rainier Tenino Trail

Deferred Maintenance

July, 2024 by amarkv

Once again the Cascade Bicycle Club’s annual Seattle-to-Portland Bicycle Ride took some 6,000 riders along the Yelm Rainier Tenino Trail this weekend. The trail used to be very pleasant but over the (17) years I have participated in the STP, the trees have grown and the tree roots have progressively ruined the surface of the asphalt. Even worse, the shade is such that it is virtually impossible to see the uneven ruts and bumps until you’ve hit them. This is especially true when dozens of cyclists are cruising down the trail in a pace line at 25 mph. Yesterday was just plain dangerous.

There are also dozens of raised yellow box covers for posts. I have never seen the posts being used, but the box covers are another pointless danger for unsuspecting cyclists. This is no small issue given that 75% to 80% of the riders each year are participating in the STP for the first time. And when one cyclist goes down, he/she takes several more down as well. These covers should be permanently removed or at least designed to be perfectly flat. Just common sense.

This trail could be a real asset to the community, but presently it is a hazard to cyclists.

Yelm Rainier Tenino Trail

worth the time

July, 2024 by sistahspeak

I can't give this 5 stars because of the 3 busy highways that you have to cross when getting close to Tenino.
Otherwise it is a great trail for distance, and relatively quiet without a lot of trail traffic.
word to the wise.. there is a significant amount of the trail that is not shaded. Wear your sunscreen and or go early in the morning.
I am planning another trail ride this year most likely in the fall.

Cedar River Trail

Nice Ride

June, 2024 by mcgeeutahadr

Nice real pretty ride on gravel and paved trail. It’s slightly downhill headed west from Landsburg Patk, but hardly noticeable. You run along the Maple Valley highway at about mile 7, so it’s not as pretty.

Cedar River Trail

Great segment from Landsburg

June, 2024 by dbarkovic

Started at Landsburg and stopped at Cascadia Pizza right on the trail. 5mi one way. Perfect segment in nature with the rustling Cedar River next to us. I think the trail aligns with the highway right after this point and gets less interesting. Definitely recommend this segment.

Foothills Trail (WA)

Spiketon Bridge

March, 2024 by sgrimmlied7

Spiketon Bridge is closed three miles out of Buckley….so disappointing! We saw no notifications about disclosure anywhere.

Preston-Snoqualmie Trail

Bridge closed

The bridge just pass the switchbacks is closed.

Sound to Olympics Trail

WTF?!

February, 2024 by timothydhaworth

The most incomplete trail network ever! I kind of see the vision but it's not even 10% done. Would love information on when more segments are going to open.

Interurban Trail North

Great trail! Signage is pretty clear and it's a fun bike ride. I'm going to try some longer trails after this.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Biked all 56 miles both ways in 2023.

October, 2023 by bkabat1

Aug. & Oct. 2023 I biked entire 56 mile trail both directions. TrailLink write-up is generally correct, with pavement at both ends and then a variety of gravel (packed, loose, and rough) through 90% of the ride. All bridges were completed many years ago, and perfectly in tact. (So, don't pay attention to the many pictures and posts here from 2011; those 2011 pics do not show nor tell of the trail as it exists today.) I used a mid-width tire (1.95"), which handled the gravel nicely. One should NOT bike the loose and rough gravel on thin street tires. I am a fair-weather-only biker: I took one bottle of water (refilled along the way), a jacket, sunscreen, but no backpack. The trail was wonderful for me in the warm, dry weather. I stopped in Pe Ell and got food at the mini-mart, and stopped in LeBam and got a late lunch. I was never in a hurry, using mid-gears over the rough, just soaking in all the beauty of the countryside, hills, forrest. Depending on your energy, you could do the whole length in one day in the dry Summer if you start at 8:30am, or do it in two days, starting around noon. The Raymond side could be a little confusing as it brushes over 101 and the city for a half-mile; map helped there. But, 99% of the trail is woods, farm fields, forrest, and beautiful countryside. I put up about 20 pictures of the journey along the way.

King County Parks reopened the 3.6-mile trail segment under construction since 2021 to the public on October 7, 2023.

Willapa Hills State Park Trail

Rainy day ride out of Chehalis

September, 2023 by ron242

With 80% chance of rain in the forecast, parking was not a problem in the 10 able-bodied slots in the Chehalis lot. (I suspect on a sunny day, you'll want a Discover Pass to access tons more parking in the state park lot, or the lots in Adna or at Ceres Hill Road.) The first 5.3 miles of asphalt were smooth but I was careful - much of the paving is split jaggedly up the center - there was a trail crew out patching the worst spot as I rode past. As others called out, do watch out, at road crossings, not only for traffic but, on either side of roads, for foundation components jutting low above the ground of at least two missing motor-vehicle-barrier posts. And as others called out, be alert for bridge transitions, some of which sport more-than-an-inch disparities between trail height and bridge bed. All that said, lovely country ride 9.7 miles to Ceres Hill Road and back to Chehalis left me wanting to return to cycle more of this trail!
