Nice forest walk with plenty of little trails to check out. Downside is the trails aren't marked well so we got lost a bit. Normally I love getting lost but I brought my parents and my cat.

I took my 3.5 year old and 2.5 year old twins. They are all very active and love walking. There was a bit of a slope at the beginning, but they were all able to manage with a bit of hand-holding. Great shade all throughout. Didn't see any water, and there is a little noise from the highway on the far side of the trail, but the surrounding nature is really nice.

Beautiful trail. My only complaint is that it’s not well marked. The map was critical.

4/26/2018 (Thursday) -- Sunlight in the opening is burning, but walking in the woods is pleasantly cool. A loop of less than 2 miles in 40 mins. Trails are dry, no much fresh horse waste. Minimal traffic. Quiet environment.

I Ride the Kirkland Corridor Almost Everyday on my Mountain Bike and It Never Gets Old. Weather it’s a Sunny Day or a Rainy one, the trail gives you great Kirkland Water Front Views surrounded by prime Kirkland Real Estate. Million dollar homes, I use Zillow app to check market values along this trail. Plenty of wooded area spots to adventure off too as well. My buddy and I always take breaks to smoke a toke off the trail. But be careful where you wonder off too, the other day a huge owl flew over so silently and snatch my buddy’s hat. They are very territorial creatures but I’m pretty sure that was a very rare incident. My favorite part of the trail though I would have to say is where the City has built a public park right through the Google Campus. I always make a stop to shoot some hoops there and get a drink out the water fountain. Excellent ride! I recommend it for everybody!!

Good small trail with lots of Creek crossings. Be sure to not miss the hairpin turn at the large bridge (where all of the little history pictures are) or else you'll end up going way up the creek (as I did)

Micro bday hike . Loved Sylvia! My only complaint is it’s too short!

Trail was nothing exciting, but very pleasant. Went during the Super Bowl, so the trail was pretty empty. Was kid, horse, and trail runner friendly. Would definitely go again (except I'd leave the dog behind- he was a little too interested in the horses. It would have been dog friendly, otherwise).

Actually one of my favorite EASY hikes ever! JAM PACKED with such beauty, it's a little gem that even during the summer crowd you can still find solitude!

Great little trail. With mild elevation change, clearly marked signage, and a few horses along the way – this is a perfect trail to bring the kiddos on.

We had a great time and plan to come back. The trail has great views and a brewery stop, but doesn't offer much of an elevation change. Great easy family trail for a weekend stroll.

12/7/2017 (Thursday) -- Cozy sunny afternoon at the lake side around 50F. The park and people in the park bask in the warm afternoon sun, which lies very low in the sky.

10/3/2017 (Tuesday) -- This is the second longest loop of the three named and marked loops in the Bridle Trails State Park, about 1.6 miles. Signs at the forks and crisscrosses are all clearly marked to follow. Along the route, there are several educational boards giving knowledge about trees and forests.

Great lake

I took my boys 5 and 9 for a hike. We decided to do the uphill part first. Trail went up and down, has beautiful views of enormous trees, Sylvia the 600 years old tree is unbelievable! My kids had a great time and even learned about where and how salmons lay eggs and saw the salmon ladder. Then we went swimming on the other side of the road. Played in the playground...a great day! Highly recommended for a short (45 min) moderately challenging and gorgeous walk.

07/21 - Nice little walk. Surprisingly quiet for how close it is to 405. Will probably be back to do the Coyote Loop.

Took my kiddos, 6 and 8, out for a little stroll and to get them out for a small hike before we did more over the summer. This is a nice walk. I always choose to start on the opposite end of the loop and do all of the uphill first. There are some spots along the path that are muddy and slick so watch your step. The walk along Denny Creek is nice but not as impressive as many others. It does the trick though and is still a pretty walk through 2nd growth forest. After the hike we went across the street and enjoyed the park and the views along Lake Washington.

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.

Pleasant walk

Saturday, June 24, 2017

This trail is rated as easy, but for someone out of shape (like myself), it was much harder. The last half of the trail is all uphill and many parts of it were covered in mud. This is not accessible to wheelchair bound or other disabled folks (I had been told that it was). It was, however, quiet, not very trafficked, and well shaded. I'm not sure I would do this again.

Nice easy walk with surprisingly beautiful views of the mountains and lake.

A pleasant lake view when whether is fine. The walk may extend along the lake side from and marina for nearly one mile between the lake and the apartment houses.

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.
