A pleasant walk through beautiful second growth forest. Beyond the canopy an Eagle could be seen soaring in lazy circles against a background of an azure sky. While the trail is well marked with connections to other routes to enjoy

7/19/2017 (Wed) - The creek is dry, just a trickling brook. Trail is dry too. Cool in the woods with 75F sunny weather.

Shady on a hot day. We love the part that goes down by the Creek. My dog loves the water, too!

Great easy afternoon hike even in the rain. Loved the rushing sound of May Creek. Appreciated the benches to sit overlooking the creek and soaking it all in. Path was very well maintained. Mud was at a minimum. I wnjoyed the personalized touches of previous hikers!

I started from the west end of the May creek Trail, at Trailwind in the neighborhood, and it was a great run through a trail where I saw only two people but it wasn't as soggy as a lot of the trail runs I've done during our very wet fall. Couldn't see the water much, but a pretty run through the hills and about 2.5 miles up to SE 89th PL and back with mild elevation change.

01/09/2016 (Tuesday) -- This is a local trail with very light traffic in most times, but the trail is mostly in good conditions with a pleasant environment, better in chilly/sunny winter days than in warm but wet spring or summer days. This was a major railroad that linked Newcastle to Renton and Seattle in late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is not much used by local residents, still less by people outside this area.

This is a great hike if you don't want to have to drive far. We parked at Lake Boren Park in Newcastle. The trail wasn't crowded. We had three dogs with us, and there was plenty of room. There was a nice view of the creek way down below, sometime we will return and try to figure out how to get down there. The path was green and pretty, along the edge of some neighborhoods, but still quiet and peaceful. The bonus of still being in town: frozen yogurt afterwards! A very satisfying afternoon.
