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

Great trail! So relaxing and without the worry of bikes running you down.

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.

Great urban forest trail; very few people and dogs

Never crowded, tons of additional trail routes, large parking lot.

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).

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.

Very easy and beautiful trees. Not very trafficked early morning.

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.

10/3/2017 (Tuesday) -- The shortest of the three named and marked trailed in the Bridle Trails State Park on the most northwest outer corner. There is a steep and narrow section on the northern side of the loop.

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.

This was a super easy trail, very flat with only a couple easy hills. Horses use the trail so be prepared for lots of horse poop. This would be a great trail for biking or trail running. The trail is really well labeled so you don't get lost.

Great hike, but a lot of horse poo-poo required us to always keep our eyes on the ground.

Loved it!

More of a casual walk than a hike. Signs are hard to find on the trail.

9/22/2016 (Thursday) -- 1 hour in a mild sunny afternoon (66F) as my first comeback to a trail after exactly one month of knee injury. I still feel weak and ache on my knee even on this easy one, but enjoy the environment and solitude of this park.

I couldn't enjoy it a lot. Many horse poop.

This trail is conveniently located in 10 minutes drive from Bellevue downtown and offers and a nice 3.5 mile trail. However, it's not very natural. Wherever you go you see buildings, roads and power lines and hear city noises. I only give it 3 stars because of its convenience.

5/5/2016 (Thursday) - Solo, 3:00-5:00, 4.5 miles, 66F, partly cloudy, cool in the woods, almost no horse rider, very few users, quiet, good solitude. Trails for horses are broad, mostly clean. Foot paths are mostly narrow, not well-maintained with excessive undergrowths. The park is mainly for horse riders, but is definitely good for foot users. This large stretch of forest is well maintained in the middle of a crowded suburban area to benefit local residents. Some trees are very old (the oldest is 250 years).
