The Rainier Trail brings trail users from the 11-mile East Lake Sammamish Trail south through downtown Issaquah. The paved trail provides access to a number of recreational, cultural and civic amenities, including a local community center, senior center, baseball diamond, skate park and City Hall. Because it directly leads to Issaquah Middle School and Issaquah High School, the trail is also a safe route to school for many of the city’s young residents.
One of the more interesting portions of the trail’s route is its alignment adjacent to the Issaquah Valley Trolley near the restored Issaquah Depot. The old train station is now a museum featuring exhibits on the local railroad history. The operating trolley was introduced as a popular addition to the museum in 2001 and continues to run on Saturdays and Sundays from April through September. The fare is by donation, which also grants access to the Issaquah Depot Museum.
Parking for the Rainier Trail is available at the Issaquah Community Center off SE Bush Street.
