Pleasant easy walk, though many mountain bikers on the trail significantly affected our pace

Recommend going up a trail (most likely Grand Ridge) but otherwise, straight along is just asking to breath in car exhaust along the highway... Meh no thanks!

Slight hill, mostly flat. Very noisy from the traffic on I-90 that parallels the trail.

I haven't ridden this trail in 25 years, and that was on an aluminum, front-suspension only bike. fast forward to today - outstanding trail maintenance and a serious bike upgrade for me had me remebering some great times out here and smiling the whole way - even during the climb. In true NW style, someone was handing out raindogs (Rainier beer

we were a little disappointed that majority of the actual terrain were only for bikers. the trail itself is literally a dirt road all the way to the top. at the top, the trees are too high to really see the view. there is another small view area that is prettier about .04 miles before the main view. it is a nice and easy trail to walk or run. no hiking poles needed for this trail.

Any trail in north bend is a beautiful experience in its own way, north bend is where my passion for hiking and traveling started. North bend holds a special place in my heart. Take the time to explore and find yourself.

when pop out on to gravel road go beyond .25 of a mile to more trail heads on tiger mountain.

Benjamin and I random tiger hike. Lots of trails a little road. We enjoyed the day

I like the trail but I don't think I truly came across a railroad type crossing or tracks which was what I expected. The trail does have several other trails near it as well.

Trail signs acknowledged hikers are welcome, but bikers have the right of way. While the trails are well-maintained and it's a beautiful area, I don't recommend this for hikers.

Amazing trail building and maintenance by the incomparable Evergreen Mountainbike Alliance. Everything from green simgletrack to double black diamond gap jumps. Family friendly and lots of scheduled classes.

Only downside is that it has become almost too popular, especially during organized events and popular times in the summer. A well deserved problem to have.

Rise aware and within your limits. EMTs responding to nasty DNFs are not an uncommon sight in the park.

Be prepared to yield to many, many cyclists. It's not a particularly amazing hike, so unless you plan on mountain biking I would save your time and sorry be there gas going somewhere else.

Excellent trail for mountain biking. Lots of little challenges with some good elevation and descents. Easy to navigate people and other Mtn bikers. Well maintained and fun to do in the summer.

Love this place

My advice would be to avoid West Side Road, which is a crushed gravel road for vehicles. It is better to stick with Iverson Railroad Trail, which is a pleasant pine needle covered path that gently winds through the forest.

I did this trail with my 10 year old. It was a decent climb up from the lot, but only for about 15-20 minutes. Then it evens out and is absolutely beautiful. It does pour out onto a fire road for a bit at the end, but it was hilly so it's still a good workout. Would do again.

Added a little extra to the doggy standard

First 1.8 miles was through the woods and was a great view and end up at the wide rocky road and walk about 1.5 miles back.

Awesome time here! Next time I will only do this on a bike. Definitely feels more fitting to ride here than walk the 10 miles we did.

Damn I'm tired of the rain. Also trying to get little man to become the trail dog he always wanted to be. I love this dog

This route has a little less road and a little more trail. A good day for Benjamin and myself

Nice easy trail.

Easy hike..... first 1.8 miles through the forest was lovely and to our surprise/dismay the loop finished with 1.6 miles of wide road ....West side Road trail.

We went in at the trail head off the Issaquah Hobart Rd SE exit off Hwy 18 E. maps online are accurate as to where the trail head is at. It is marked, but discrete. We took dogs on leashes and found the terrain rolling and pleasant, but very wet. Waterproof footwear definitely recommended for wet season hiking. Trail is well maintained without losing the wilderness feel. We only went about an hour in and backtracked out.

Homeless Camp 4 at the trailhead. Need I say more.

It was a beautiful trail but we definitely had to step aside several times to accommodate mountain bikers. We like it because it's in our neighborhood so we have easy access. It will be a good one to take friends visiting from out of town for a close easy hike.
