Bridle Trails State Park, a 482-acre day-use park, is well-known for its horse trails and equestrian shows. The forested park is on the northeast edge of the Seattle metropolitan area.
This trail is conveniently located in 10 minutes drive from Bellevue downtown and offers and a nice 3.5 mile trail. However, it's not very natural. Wherever you go you see buildings, roads and power lines and hear city noises. I only give it 3 stars because of its convenience.
5/5/2016 (Thursday) - Solo, 3:00-5:00, 4.5 miles, 66F, partly cloudy, cool in the woods, almost no horse rider, very few users, quiet, good solitude. Trails for horses are broad, mostly clean. Foot paths are mostly narrow, not well-maintained with excessive undergrowths. The park is mainly for horse riders, but is definitely good for foot users. This large stretch of forest is well maintained in the middle of a crowded suburban area to benefit local residents. Some trees are very old (the oldest is 250 years).
