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.

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.

9/22/2016 (Thursday) -- 1 hour in a mild sunny afternoon (66F) as my first comeback to a trail after exactly one month of knee injury. I still feel weak and ache on my knee even on this easy one, but enjoy the environment and solitude of this park.

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.

5/5/2016 (Thursday) - Solo, 3:00-5:00, 4.5 miles, 66F, partly cloudy, cool in the woods, almost no horse rider, very few users, quiet, good solitude. Trails for horses are broad, mostly clean. Foot paths are mostly narrow, not well-maintained with excessive undergrowths. The park is mainly for horse riders, but is definitely good for foot users. This large stretch of forest is well maintained in the middle of a crowded suburban area to benefit local residents. Some trees are very old (the oldest is 250 years).
