Great hike for the whole family. Share the trails with leashed dogs and folks on horseback. We'll definitely be back.

My wife and I enjoyed this trail with our two dogs. Previous post have said it was hard to navigate but we had no issues following the signs.

This is a fun trail for casual hikers! The trail is flat and so hiking it is fairly easy. The trail was not marked well, but I had cell service and used Google maps to make sure I stayed on the proper path. Would definitely recommend for new and experienced hikers alike!

A really lovely walk with many side trails. The variety of birds was a nice surprise. Be warned though, horse poop along trail (and side trails) frequent, and hardly any signage. Would meander around again though!!

A really nice hike. There were lots of horse and dog droppings, so beware. need better trail markings.

great hike in suburb.. since the trail is shared by horses, there were lots of horse droppings along the way but that didn't bother us much.. took us a little over an hr to finish.. wasn't crowded at all on a weekday at 3pm!

Raven trail is smooth and very pleasant all the way. Apt for beginners. It was not crowded for a weekend.

Nice easy hike on a crisp fall day. Only trouble was navigation, very few trail markers/wayfinding signage.

You can be in the middle of a forest right in Bellevue. It’s beautiful. Smooth single and double track trail running.

Hike this loop clockwise so you see the signs, as there are many smaller offshoots, though most are obviously just that. Only once or twice was there a confusing unmarked fork where we needed a map. The trail was lightly trafficked, with most people near the beginning or end of the trail where it overlaps with a shorter loop. The freeway road noise is strongest at the beginning and end of the loop, but it gets quiet at the back part of the loop. There was some horse poop here and there along the trail, but not an obnoxious amount.

Did the coyote loop, longest outer loop (roughly 6 miles), with the 5 & 6 year old. They loved it. Pretty flat, people riding horses, not overcrowded. Watch the stinging nettles along parts, we learned the hard way. Great trail.

Never crowded, tons of additional trail routes, large parking lot.

This trail is the outer loop. There are 30+ miles of additional trails crisscrossing through lowland forest.

This was a super easy trail, very flat with only a couple easy hills. Horses use the trail so be prepared for lots of horse poop. This would be a great trail for biking or trail running. The trail is really well labeled so you don't get lost.

Great hike, but a lot of horse poo-poo required us to always keep our eyes on the ground.

More of a casual walk than a hike. Signs are hard to find on the trail.
