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.

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.
This trail is the old roadway over part of Lake Washington in Juanita bay and is now accessible only to pedestrians. It's popular with walkers, runners, and birdwatchers. Pilings from the old dock used for ferry service are visible here, along with a couple of bald eagles who move between Juanita Bay park and Juanita beach park, and fish in the lake below.
