Road bikingGreat!

Really nice path, paved, wide & flat. We biked this trail from Bothell southward before, but decided to bike it northward from Redmond. Was a lot more crowded from this end. Park in Marymoor park & pick up the trail. Really only place to park in the area. Now, a little info! We are new bikers and we believe in doing what is right. Most other bikers do not single you that they are passing you by saying, "on your left." Or ringing a bell if they have one. And most bikers pay no attention to the 15 mph speed limit. Unfortunately, they are a discredit to bikers. On this day we witnessed several near misses caused by bikers. We have ridden a lot of trails in the last month and this sadly is the norm.

WalkingGreat!

Perfect for a Sunday stroll/bike/longboard ride! Our family loves to get out in the sunshine and fresh air! We started at Wilmot Gateway and headed toward Bothell Landing. We turned around at 2 miles (just short of Bothell Landing). The weather was perfect but we noticed walkers are not super welcome on this trail. Next time we’ll all have wheels!

Heavy traffic on a Sunday, lots of bikes and good to see people wearing masks. Fairly easy and well maintained trail.

The directions bring you to Bothell. I thought this was the Burke Gilman Trail? or at least connects to it. Way too busy

Road bikingGreat!

Heavily-trafficked, smooth, flat, well-maintained with several places/parks for rest and other recreation. Attractive and a more "family-friendly" option than Burke-Gilman. A couple of tight, switchback turns/corners that can be dangerous if you don't slow down and pay attention, especially with other folks on the trail. Still too many speeders and riders disregarding signage and signaling, but fewer than the Burke. We'll ride this one again!

Fantastic trail, walking or biking. Rode our bikes from the Bothell end. Paved, wide, off and on shade, big parking lot. Will definitely go back. Only rode 5 miles due to thet. heat. Can hardly wait to get back on it. Not real crowded due to the heat. Some of the bikers need biking 101 lessons about passing people without letting them know they are there!

First time biking this trail. Slightly crowded, but I was still able to bike at a good pace with average speed of 16mph. 21 miles round trip starting at Marymoor Park to where Burke trail intersects

I love the place, but, venue or not, it really does attract A LOT of people on some days. Many very, very clean, family friendly, flat trails. There’s a rock wall now, new and improved doggie park. Many clean-cut fields and courts for almost every activity. There’s an endless blackberry wall, (given the time of year). And of course-the venue. There is always a show, display, or concert happening spring and summer so you really need to keep yourself updated. (I’ve seen Sublime, Dirty Heads, Slightly Stoopid, many more...
