July 2017 - Decent, accessible and flat trail that cuts through various neighborhoods of Kirkland. We started at the South Kirkland Park n Ride at the bottom end of the trail and walked to the 3.5 mile mark at corner of Crestwoods Park, then back for total of 7.0 miles RT.

There's a fair amount of traffic in form of walkers, bikers, runners. Wide enough though that you don't need to stop to let others by. Terrain is packed gravel and dirt, so it gets a little dusty in dry conditions. Also, not a lot of cover or shade so I was grateful to have a hat.

Passes behind some fancy residential areas with enviable views of Lake Washington and Seattle, pleasant woodsy areas, and light industrial. The trail goes straight through the immaculately landscaped Google campus and the public playground they built on it. There is also a local brewery right next to the trail, Chainline Brewing.

Kirkland did an awesome job converting this old rail corridor that runs through the spine of Kirkland into a beautiful trail for residents to enjoy. It's a great place to escape to nature for a run in Kirkland's backyard. I look forward to when the trail extends north to Woodinville and Redmond as part of the Eastside Rail Corridors over the next few years. That will be a great trail to bike and use to connect to other trails in the region like the Sammamish River Trail. I hope we preserve this beautiful trail that Kirkland's residents having quickly grown to love.

Really good! Had a hard time finding the start... Parked in the park and ride and ran UP 108th-one tenth of a mile it appeared in my left! Easy to run on; almost completely flat. Did the full 5! Scenic views of the water on my way out!

Nice for when you want to take an easy stroll with your family or even bike without worrying about cars. There's a little off path trail through the trees that I absolutely LOVE! It's about half a mile both ways maybe a little more. It's on the left right before the last bridge type structure. It's a man made path so be someone cautious of that but on a scale of 1-10 it's difficulty level is probably a 3 haha. Worth it though! I'll include pictures.

They've taken out the tracks and the trail is usable now for walking, running and biking, butt the surface is still unfinished.
