Not very exciting but a decent way to mix up running on sidewalks. Worth a shot if you’re stuck in one of the hotels in the area contracting for Microsoft and need a change of scenery from jogging the campus.

Terrible trail. Stay on the Cross Kirkland Corridor.

nice easy stroll in the woods. good for running too. so peaceful and green. I loved it.

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.

It's an easy trail that is mostly shaded, so you don't have to worry about sun screen :) there isn't much to see besides the trees, and there is quite a lot of horse poop on the trail. July 8, 2018

Hike this loop clockwise so you see the signs, as there are many smaller offshoots, though most are obviously just that. Only once or twice was there a confusing unmarked fork where we needed a map. The trail was lightly trafficked, with most people near the beginning or end of the trail where it overlaps with a shorter loop. The freeway road noise is strongest at the beginning and end of the loop, but it gets quiet at the back part of the loop. There was some horse poop here and there along the trail, but not an obnoxious amount.

Did the coyote loop, longest outer loop (roughly 6 miles), with the 5 & 6 year old. They loved it. Pretty flat, people riding horses, not overcrowded. Watch the stinging nettles along parts, we learned the hard way. Great trail.

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.

This trail is the outer loop. There are 30+ miles of additional trails crisscrossing through lowland forest.

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.

12/14/2017 (Thursday) - Many people, and I also, have often come here to take a walk on the lakeside to enjoy the pleasant view and the ambience of Kirkland's town center. This is the last sunny afternoon of a rarely long period (10 days) of fine weather in the chilly rainy season.

10/3/2017 (Tuesday) -- In the Bridle Trails State Park, one may hike a loop without exactly following any of the three named ones. This is one of my self-designed loops. If it's not too hot and the trails inside the woods are too wet. The power-line trail is an ideal one for walking and running.

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.
