Bike or Hike? Two Outdoor Scenic Trips in Mts to Sound Greenway
The non-profit Greenway Trust has announced two summertime-excursions for those looking for a good reason to get into the outdoors for a little exercise and enjoy some tasty barbecue at the end.
The “Explore the Greenway” trips bring hikers and bicyclists outdoors to explore some of the scenic and wonderful places in the Mountains to Sound Greenway.
June 29 | Snoqualmie Tunnel Bike Ride and BBQ | 8:30am – 2pm
Discover the 2-mile tunnel underneath Snoqualmie Pass, a remnant of railroad history. The biking trip will take riders through the tunnel’s cool darkness onto a 20-mile stretch in Iron Horse State Park, providing majestic views of the Cascades and a barbeque at Rattlesnake Lake.
July 13 | Rattlesnake Mountain Hike and BBQ | 8:30am – 3pm
Hike across a popular mountain in the Greenway: Rattlesnake Mountain. Most hikers know the trail up to Rattlesnake Ledge, but trip participants will be able to explore further and trek 10 miles across the mountain, enjoying sweeping views of the Snoqualmie Valley and Cascades, with educational stops and a well-deserved barbeque at Snoqualmie Point Park.
The Greenway Trust handles all logistics for trip participants, including shuttle service and barbeque at the end of each trip. Trips are $25/person. Register at mtsgreenway.org.
