Not bad. Starts out parallel to residential streets but then areas of forest. The eastern half of the trail is fairly level with light gravel over dirt but then becomes progressively rougher as you go west. West of 140th is basically just dirt and rocks on uneven terrain that is also quite hilly, so I imagine that section is a mudslide after rain. I’d do this again, but really just because it’s the closest unpaved trail to me, so if I’m short on time it’s not the worst trail.

Beautiful forest but no signs, so be ready to navigate on your own and try not to get lost.

Nice connector trail between Bridle Trails and Marymoor Park. Soft surfaces are nice, around 2 miles from the NE corner of Bridle trails to the Sammamish River trail/Marymoor Park. A few street crossings, but nothing too bad. I usually avoid the first section of the trail (Bridle side) because it's steep and the footing isn't great. Really like this trail to change up the routes on some of my runs.

Not very exciting but a decent way to mix up running on sidewalks. Worth a shot if you’re stuck in one of the hotels in the area contracting for Microsoft and need a change of scenery from jogging the campus.

4/21/2016 (Thursday) - Solo 2:30 - 4:50, 6.8 miles, 2.3 hours, 70F, mostly sunny. The trail has good shade for a hot sunny day. Not used much by horse riders. Very light traffic. Interesting ravine down to Marymoor Park on the east end.

Wooded connector trail between Bridle Trails park and Marymoor park. Crosses a freeway and offers views of numerous backyards with barking dogs.
