Cross Kirkland Corridor is a 5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Kirkland, Washington that features a great forest setting and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running and is accessible year-round.
A section of the old Burlington Northern Railway corridor, purchased by the City of Kirkland WA for use as a mixed use trail. Railroad right of way running through Kirkland between Bellevue and Woodinville, WA.
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!
Neat. Easy. Light traffic.
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.
They've taken out the tracks and the trail is usable now for walking, running and biking, butt the surface is still unfinished.
