Cross Kirkland Corridor Description

True to its name, the Cross Kirkland Corridor traverses the city for nearly six miles, connecting eight neighborhoods, four major business districts, more than a dozen parks, and several public schools. Google, a major employer in the area, has an adjacent campus near the trail’s southern end in the Houghton neighborhood.

The rail-trail is part of the developing 42-mile Eastside Rail Trail network, stretching from Renton to Snohomish. The railroad line was built in 1904 to haul coal and lumber, but later expanded to agricultural and industrial freight. In Kirkland, the rails and ties were removed in 2013.

The trail has the level grade of a typical rail-trail, is well-marked, and has many well-shaded sections.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Crestwoods Park (1818 6th Street) and Terrace Park (10333 NE 67th Street).

Cross Kirkland Corridor Reviews

This trail is gravel, so only slower or family biking is better. Many streets to cross, some very busy, some with Z design making tandem crossing tricky. Construction detour areas are not well marked. Walkers don't always pick up after their dogs so watch out. Also, some areas are Environmentally Sensitive, but beautiful, whereas others are the backs of factories & warehouses. On the plus side, it's so new that it is still in very good condition, smooth and relatively clean.
