Ride from Seattle to Snoqualmie on one trail
As part of a scenic 50-mile journey, cyclists can now ride from Seattle to Snoqualmie Falls along part of King County’s 175-mile Regional Trails System. The newest link connected Issaquah and Preston late last summer, thanks to the Mountains to Sound Greenway.
This means cyclists can hop on the Burke-Gilman Trail in Seattle and ride connected trails via the 11-mile Sammamish River Trail starting in Bothell, the 1.6-mile Marymoor (Park) Connector Trail, the 11-mile East Lake Sammamish Trail, the seven-mile Issaquah-Preston Trail and finally to the existing seven-mile Preston-Snoqualmie Trail.
“The Mountains to Sound Greenway encompasses a world-class regional trail system,” says Cynthia Welti, Executive Director of the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust. “Our vision is that a walker or bicyclist could travel on safe, enjoyable, off-road routes that connect Puget Sound urban areas to the Cascades and central Washington.”
The Mountains to Sound Greenway is the 1.5 million-acre landscape connecting Puget Sound and central Washington.
