Forest preserve between Bellevue and Kirkland. Great for trail runners and equestrians.

9/22/2016 (Thursday) -- 1 hour in a mild sunny afternoon (66F) as my first comeback to a trail after exactly one month of knee injury. I still feel weak and ache on my knee even on this easy one, but enjoy the environment and solitude of this park.

I couldn't enjoy it a lot. Many horse poop.

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).

A lot of horse poop, too close to the street.

Nice series of trails in a forest preserve in Kirkland. As the name implies, this is a fine area for horseback riding which is very popular. Trail runners and walkers need to take care not to spook the horses, but many dart into the forest where numerous social trails have been carved out leaving the horses on the main trail. Trail use is fairly heavy and it can be muddy and peppered with manure.

Great place for a run with a ton of trails to choose from. Horse droppings are never something you desire on a run but there is not a deterring amount. Would definitely recommend for a run or walk

It feels like you are in the middle of the boonies, when you are only 15 minutes from the big City. Just watch out for the equine feces...

This is a nice trail to do an easy walk while enjoying the fresh air and horses that walk by. Runners and equestrian primarily use these trails but don't let that discourage you from enjoying a nice walk as there is plenty of room and numerous trails to choose from. There are 3 primary trails to choose from but then there are numerous side trails to take you on a different adventure. I also enjoy not having to put on any bug repellent!

This is an overall great trail. The trails are clearly marked and well maintained. There is no major elevation change, which makes the trail easy for all ages. It seemed that there were more horseback riders than hikers. The horses were easily startled, so it's important to keep an eye out for them and make your presence known. The best part of the trails is that it is easy to forget that the trail is located in the middle of a suburban area.

Very easy, lots and lots of criss crossing trails, mostly for horses but we only saw 4 riders on this sunny day today. Muddy at this time of year, would be great for trail runners.
