Trail is in excellent condition for all types of activities (e.g. bicycle riding, jogging, walking). Beautiful day today after the early morning rain. Now is a great partly cloudy sky with lots of spring sun.

It's a great easy path. There are a lot of people when the weather is nice. Friendly to horses and dogs. Beautiful surroundings and a long trail to go as far as you'd like.

We walked the first 2 miles of the Centennial Trail starting in the town of Snohomish. It was nicely paved clean and dry today.

love this trail! so beautiful , clean and well maintained. good for kids!

Really enjoyed this trail - took my father in law when he was in town. Only down side is the bicyclists can be a bit aggressive. It was usually about half that were very kind and the other half was frustrated there were people. My father in law is an avid bicyclists and he was really surprised by the negative behavior. Other than that beautiful views and wildlife viewing.

This was a great trail to bike and not have to worry about cars. I went mid-day to take advantage of the warm weather. There were quite a few walkers close to the towns, but I had the trail to myself in between, passing a handful of bikes going the opposite direction. Beautiful scenery; very well maintained trail.

I enjoy doing segments of this trail on days that I want to take my cardio outdoors instead of inside at my gym..Lucky that I always pick the right time and is never busy

Nice relaxing easy ride to Centennial Park. Great views of Mount Baker, Golden Ears, the Lions and the Northern Shore ski hills.

Awesome bike ride, beautiful paved trail. Trail runs through Orting, which is a very cool town. Towards end of trail you can stop for a coffee at a trailside coffee shop. Would highly recommend this trail.

took the dog and a friend on this hike today, glad we made it before they close the tunnel October 31st 2018. bathrooms are at end of 2.1 mile tunnel.

nice relaxing trail near the water

I take my toddler to orting all the time for the foothills trail. We have explored a few parts of it and there is still so much more to see and experience. Cool river view points and an awesome view of Mt Rainer.

Pretty flat. Lots of great scenery. Crowded during summer . But very enjoyable.

Beautiful walk, bike or float down the river!

Love this trail for jogging with my kids who bike while I run. My daughter doesn't like pedaling up hills - she's fine with this trail as it is flat plus I get my Mojo seeing the Mountain. You'll be able to see and hear the rushing water of Carbon River along a portion of the trail.

Enjoyed hiking and exploring the John Wayne Trail and Snoqualmie Tunnel..Lots of history!! Make sure you bring your headlamps. Discovery Pass required, parking and restrooms before trailhead.

A Very nice walk along the water.

Easy and flat, great for my young kids. we parked further away than necessary, lesson learned as it was still quite a hike to the first river access. Fun watching all the fly fisherman and their catches. Our kids loved the cold river and so did our Lab.

Great, paved and smooth trail to hike, bike or run!

A great paved trail for walking/running, biking, skating, and horseback riding. The trail runs along beautiful rivers, meadows, forests, and passed great little downtowns. The trail is relatively flat on the portion I biked- from Snohomish to north of Lake Stevens. There were also 2 or 3 stops with facilities (restrooms, water fountains). It was a great ride and I plan to be back often.

walked the tunnel early in the morning with my son and two dogs, not to much traffic in the tunnel until we came back. it's a nice walk, remember a jacket and a good flashlight or headlamp. the tunnel is really dark. there was a nice place to sit and relax or have a snack before continuing the hike to twin falls.

The tunnel is 2.3 miles of dark, cold and dripping. It was crazy crowded with hiker/walkers, bikers of all types. I rate it easy as long as you can walk 5 miles. Be careful, some little kids were not paying attention an nearly go hit in the dark. Some others had no light or it died. So have a back up. Light jacket in summer while in tunnel is a good idea. If you park at the Hyat lot at east tunnel entrance you need a discovery pass. There is day pass envelopes there and rest rooms. I am

Nice relaxing walk.. good to clear the mind

Please note we only did the tunnel portion of the trail which is around 5+ miles round trip. This is a great option for the heat sensitive or for those who don’t like doing elevations.
The tunnel is a cool experience. Speaking of cool, the tunnel is a great way to beat the summer heat. If you get cold easily, be sure to bring a sweatshirt or windbreaker. Also, you’ll want a flashlight.

Starting on the Hyak side you’ll be able to feel the cool air as you near the entrance. The trail is not paved but is hard pack. There are dripping areas so there are some puddles along the way. Once you reach the other end there are some tables, a small waterfall, some nice views, and a toilet facility.

On the way back you’re walking with the breeze so it will feel a lot warmer. It u get warm u can stop for a minute and enjoy the breeze.

As a reminder, you will need.a discover pass. We forgot so used our phone and bought one online. Luckily there was a good signal. Hours are 6a - Dusk.

Lots of bikes- good amount of shade. If you start at trail head given here in Orting, you can go left towards the Safeway which is 7.5 miles to the Puyallup trail head with lots of farms and runs along 162. If you go right, it's 12 miles to Buckley with lots of shots of the river and pastures. Both ways offer good views of the mountain. Smooth, easy ride with more stop signs and road crossings than I like. Still a nice ride or walk regardless.
