Iron Goat Trail

A treasure worth keeping

May, 2017 by drwayken

First visit in 2010, the 100th anniversary of the disaster. Read the book, White Cascade, for the compelling human stories within the story of the railroad.
I keep going back, even when recovering from chemo, even weeks before heart surgery. I enjoy introducing friends to this beautiful Washington hike and the story. The somber, hush-compelling snowshed sets us up for the overlook. Continue on the overlook at Scenic for a picnic lunch (cleanup your trash!). Return to Wellington and savor the experience. Stop at the Windy Point Interpretive spot (Look for the red Great Northern Caboose.) A good day trip from Seattle if you leave by 8:30 a.m.

Burke-Gilman Trail

Multiple Rides During Every Visit to Seattle

May, 2017 by gjswitek

A sunny Sunday afternoon can bring traffic jams on the trail, but most of the time I use it during the week when traffic is much lighter. Have found it to be a comfortable ride with many places to stop and enjoy other activities. Would love to see the local street portion improved to make it safer, and enjoy the newest route through the university much more than the old detour. Have ridden well past Matthew's Beach and like that section of the trail the most. It is quieter and not as heavily traveled.

Snohomish County Centennial Trail

My Birthday Year Ride

May, 2017 by gjswitek

Did the entire trail in both directions plus the extra six miles to match my age of 67. It was a wonderful experience, relatively quiet even when the trail ran adjacent to roads. Loved the scenery, met some very nice people, and the discovery of Nutty's Junk Yard and Grill was worth the 20 mile ride to get there. The deep fried mushrooms and burger did a great job of replacing the calories I burned on the ride. The northbound leg was a bit slower than coming back south so I would recommend starting in Snohomish. Would definitely ride this trail again.

Pigeon Creek Trail

nice quick run

May, 2017 by liza_pavenko

Just long enough of a trail for my 3 year old to bike and me to run alongside. Nice clean beach at the end. There is no trail access at the beginning point, only end point

Burnt Bridge Creek Trail

It's pretty good

May, 2017 by josiah.peterson

The trail is pretty large and has some other trails where it leads off of. It seems good for biking. One issue I found with the trail were the power lines that were there. However, after a certain distance those are ignored.

Cascade Trail

A bit rough

April, 2017 by pocoken

My wife and I recently rode this trail and found a little too rough for cyclo cross bikes the scenery was indeed spectacular but switched over to SR20 on the way back which was much better. The road has a nice wide shoulder and we felt safe.i would imagine that horseback riding or cross country skiing would be much better. When in Sedro Woolley you should pop in to the market store on Metcalfe street. They have a little bit of everything

Soos Creek Trail

Nice Sunday Trail

April, 2017 by zoomdude57

Convenient multi-purpose trail near Lake Meridian. Trail is maintained well and nice blend of trees and open spaces.

Fish Lake Trail

What a beautiful gem.

April, 2017 by narniawest

Found this trail while in the area for a few days and decided to give it a try. So glad I did!!!! Beautiful pavement that is wide and well maintained beckons one on to finish this 9 mile trail slightly up hill to its end point. One can only hope the good people of this city will finish this trail soon. Only downer was large cracks in the pavement between mile 5-8. A couple of them where bone jarring. Nice ride through the pines made my day. Thanks for a splendid trail experience.

East Lake Sammamish Trail

Beautiful trail along Lake Sammamish

February, 2017 by mark.whiteside

**Feb 2017 the trail is closed at the south section for maintenance This is a beautiful trail that is paved and gravel. The paved section is at the north most end and the gravel is in the south. The north end, the paved section, also has public restrooms and picnic areas under cover. The south does not. It runs along the edge of the lake and is popular with walkers as well as bicyclists.

Marymoor Connector Trail

Well maintained trail through Marymoor Park

February, 2017 by mark.whiteside

As the trail description describes, this connects the East Lake Sammamish Trail and the Sammamish River Trail. That said it is a frequent starting point for us given that it has lots of parking and restrooms. Note there is a parking fee of one dollar for day use. The trail is asphalt or concrete and is in very good condition.

Snohomish County Centennial Trail

Fantastic trail with beautiful scenery

February, 2017 by mark.whiteside

As a round-trip, this makes a beautiful metric century ride. There is parking at both ends as well as many spots along the way. The trail is wide and in great condition. While the area around Arlington runs along a busy street and through light industrial sections, most of the trail is Royal and quite scenic.

John Wayne Pioneer Trail

Rugged but great adventure

February, 2017 by johnwaynepioneertrail

We rode the whole trail from the Idaho border to Cedar Falls in 2016. It is not true that "145 miles" of the trail are closed. There are some detours due to missing trestles, a section of live rail, and short sections of private land. There are no plans to close the trail through the Yakima Training Center. The JWPT is a great way to explore Washington's geography and history through areas not seen from a car. We passed through without any disruption or trespass, and with barely any notice, although we did meet some very friendly people along the trail. We only left behind money we spent in small towns along the way, including those on the detours. For more accurate information go to www.johnwaynepioneertrail.org.
