Road bikingGreat!

Very nice paved, wide trail. We started in Bothell at the Sammamish River Trail & this trail junction & rode west toward Seattle. Some road noise at the start, but the further you go, that ceases as you ride along the west bank of Lake Washington. Little hilly in places, but very manageable. Not all that crowded.

Walking

We were looking for a place to walk with our dog. So we did this path for a few miles. The wife and I, with our dog have walked this path before. The path is heavily used by bikes. Most are courteous, however many just speed by with no warning. I would not recommend this path for walkers, especially with kids or dogs, however this is a good path for bikes. Not sure I would take small kids on bikes it is crowded on nice days.

Could be great trail: smooth, flat and well-maintained. But very heavily-trafficked by bikers who disregard signage, signaling and speed limits. Not for the kids or inexperienced bikers, in my opinion.

Good trail for walk, run and kayaking and especially if you have a bicycle, it will be great.

It's a long ride relatively speaking but it is so convenient around the lake. It's got everything although there are some difficult car filled parts as in Renton but it gives such an amazing view of all things Seattle!

I keep thinking I should do this loop again. From 1994-2000 this was a common training route for me when I raced.
