Love this trail. To be honest I'm a bit attached to it since it's the first trail I rode and it's only 2 miles from home. I ride it almost every day even in the winter. It's pretty deserted at night except for a few people but it's a delight. I normally start at celebration park and go all the way to madrona park, but on weeknights, I turn around at 356th st because there are some drivers who don't stop even when the crossing lights are flashing. But it's an absolute delight and gives me a work out due to the hills
Just moved to the Bonney Lake area. I bought my house at it's location with this trail as a main part of the decision making process. It has not disappoint me. Me and fur babies have been going there every chance we have since Sep 2019. Not a lot of people. Even on weekends. When you go more than 1 mile beyond the parking lots, there's really no one there walking except the cyclists. It's pretty peaceful and quiet. The only segment that I don't like is at the South Prarie lot toward the RV park. The residents from the RV park use the same trail for their dogs. Unfortunately, there are a couple of residents with big dogs that don't pickup their dog poop. I used to walk my dog through that segment. I would carry extra bags to help bag them up. In one short segment around the RV park, I easily can bag up 6-8 poops (not including my own pet's). Especially if I've not been there a couple of days. I wish those pet owners would take more responsibility to keep the trial clean. I'm not saying not to go to that segment. But, be careful where you, your kids and your dog step.
Other than the RV park segment, the rest of the trail is serene, well kept. It is a safe haven for cyclists and walker / joggers.
Nicely redone thru the Expedia property, this trail is smooth and dries quickly after a rain. 3.4 mile round trip loop between the Sculpture Garden entrance at Elliott/Broad and a new public parking lot just south of the Magnolia Bridge. Great art including the classic "Adjacent, Against, Upon"
I give 5 stars to what has been completed. It is definitely an urban trail, but I love that it stops by parks along the way. It is so much nicer to be able to have a trail to not only take walks but to travel between areas to shop. I look forward to its continued development. I hope that all the cities involved do a better job of keeping pedestrians in mind as they plan for the future.
What a beautiful ride especially in the fall. The Foothills Trail is all around awesome!!!!
My entire family has enjoyed using this bike path for many years. The views are beautiful, especially near sunset. The path is heavily used by walkers, joggers, cyclists and rollerbladers. Always using proper trail etiquette, passing "on your right" and this should reduce the possibility of any mishap.
My wife and I finally rode this trail over the weekend and we couldn't be more thrilled at the great workout it provided us. Trail started out through a quiet section of Renton, but got louder as it followed a busy road. The trail provided a lot of chances to see the Cedar River. We stopped and turned around at the end of the paved trail and just raved at the views and the total experience. We will definitely come back and ride the whole stretch.
I've ridden the entire length of this trail once by myself and twice with my wife, who is new to riding. We both enjoy the ever changing scenery as the trail hugs the Green River. There are some iffy spots, mostly late in the day, due to some homeless encampments under some of the bridges/overpasses. On those portions of the trail, I usually take lead with her riding close by.
Bikers we've encountered are generally friendly folks.
Rode the whole trail first 12 1/2 miles paved too bad it is so close to road. The last part which is a hard packed gravel is very pretty all in woods crossing back and forth over river
My mothers family is from the area, and lived in Lebam, so was interested in riding a section. Happened upon a local who said that the edges of trail were mowed at least yearly to keep branches and blackberry vines back and this section was being finished. Thanks to info re: getting on from Robertson Rd, I located the very small entrance and rode about 3 miles W to the Trap Creek Bridge. Trail reminiscent of a very long private road with 2 small single tracks and some grassy patches. Doable on cross bike or better.
I ride this trail twice a week from Everett to work in Mountlake Terrace and mostly love it. The areas in which you actually ride on the trail are wonderful. That means the sections from about Lynnwood Park & Ride thru Everett. I often am alone on those sections of trail, and I love to look over at stopped traffic on I-5 and feel smugly secure that I'm getting to work faster and with better exercise than those people.
The negatives of this trail are as people described: it starts and stops and sometimes there are sketchy people. There are several streets in which the trail stops and the rider has to cross streets -- 128th Street, 164th Street, approaching the back side of Alderwood Mall, and most of Mountlake Terrace including 220th Street. Those aspects of the trail are frustrating because they break the riding flow and make bikes feel like second class transportation. I especially hate the uphill/downhill approaching the mall, as it required riding on the road up a hill. It's a shame the city of Lynnwood couldn't widen that bridge to allow for bikes. Near 128th Street, the trail ends at an apartment complex and you have to ride through an area congested with kids in the afternoons, requiring weaving through people. Then on the other side of 128th, towards Everett, there are occasionally sketchy people who you can just bike away from.
Despite these frustrations, I love my Interurban Trail and am happy to ride it frequently. It's been improved over the years, especially thru Lynnwood, and riding it is a great way to start and finish the day.
We rode the north most section on our road bikes with our son on the back in a baby seat. We are avid bikers in our home area and this is the smoothest, best kept trail we have ever been on. The views are lovely. The only difficulty was when riding through town there are a lot of stop signs where you need to yield to cars. But it was completely doable.
