I want to do this again and start at the gravel section instead of the paved part. The gravel and dirt areas have some steep hills so if it’s wet out you might want to make sure you’re wearing trail running shoes. A lot of the trail runs beside houses and offices so I felt pretty safe the whole time even though the pics make it look pretty desolate. I need to figure out parking. I was a bit worried about getting towed from this office park. But it’s a cool run. Not many options in this part of town for unpaved trails!

On bike at least, this trail reminds you what ~700 feet elevation feels like. Did this is what become a down pour-it felt good and a great workout. By bike, you may not see much because you’re looking at your tire while going up or down hill.

Decent workout. Hiked it in the early morning so it was enjoyable to hear the birds . Passed by a well manicured badminton net complete with racquets for public use. Very nice touch . Rolling hills make it a good challenge for someone just looking for exercise.

More like a walking path than a hike, but nicely cared for. Mostly paved. Some hills.

Found a Badminton court that was free to the public to play. Fun time with a Manuel.

The first 10 min. of this trail was uneventful, then had to cross a bay road and then as the name says, followed the power lines along a trail that was mostly boarded on each side with blackberry bushes. With so many trail options in the area, unless I was specifically looking to pick some free blackberries, I would pass on this trail. That said I only hiked the first 1.5 miles, so may try it again starting from where I turned around the last time.

This is my go to trail and I love it. The hills make for a great workout, the views make it peaceful. Never a lot of traffic.

Walked from Puget Power trail point from behind Overlake Christian church. Walked to Redmond Watershed. After coming out of trail at 196th, I continued to PowerLine via 206th Ave NE/NE 112th St. You have to walk on a main road(NE 116th St) to get to 206th Ave.

I biked along the trail - its mostly gravel and has some steep hills. Best part is Minimal traffic throughout the trail. Great workout because of the slopes .

5/17/2016 (Tuesday) - This trail is well maintained, but lightly used. It features gentle ups and downs, and distant views at some points. Good for a half-day walk.

Good trail but the descent down to the Sammamish River Trail can be tough especially for new riders.
