Kirkland did an awesome job converting this old rail corridor that runs through the spine of Kirkland into a beautiful trail for residents to enjoy. It's a great place to escape to nature for a run in Kirkland's backyard. I look forward to when the trail extends north to Woodinville and Redmond as part of the Eastside Rail Corridors over the next few years. That will be a great trail to bike and use to connect to other trails in the region like the Sammamish River Trail. I hope we preserve this beautiful trail that Kirkland's residents having quickly grown to love.

Really good! Had a hard time finding the start... Parked in the park and ride and ran UP 108th-one tenth of a mile it appeared in my left! Easy to run on; almost completely flat. Did the full 5! Scenic views of the water on my way out!
Short set of loop trails in a wooded area just west of 405 in Kirkland, near the 520 interchange. Why mention the freeways? That's part of what you'll hear on this trail. 405 is just on the other side of the wall on the eastern section of the loop. On the west side is a steep ravine draining down toward Lake Washington and a creek draining into the wetlands and said lake. It is a nice trail run or walk for locals in the neighborhood and their dogs.
5/3/2016 (Tuesday) - This part is rarely used by serious hikers because of its small size, mainly used by local residents for walking dogs or meditation. Pleasant woody trails and interesting terrain for half to one hour's walk. Its western slope is very steep, but a broad road stretches down to the bottom the ravine, where there is a running creek.
Nice for when you want to take an easy stroll with your family or even bike without worrying about cars. There's a little off path trail through the trees that I absolutely LOVE! It's about half a mile both ways maybe a little more. It's on the left right before the last bridge type structure. It's a man made path so be someone cautious of that but on a scale of 1-10 it's difficulty level is probably a 3 haha. Worth it though! I'll include pictures.
