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.
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.
7/30/2016 (Saturday) -- A nice, quiet walk in the woods and a calm view of the lake from a well maintained beach park with picnic tables, chairs, restroom. The loop in the woods is good from a walk of less than 1 hour. A big tree of 600 years old is an attraction.
