Savor the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley. Start the morning with a historic train ride before we grab our bikes and pedal through forest and farmland on 20-miles of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. Sample local food, meet farmers, hear stories from the past, and discover the magic that this valley, just outside of Seattle, has to offer.

Registration is now closed.

If you would still like to join, please contact ‘margaret.ullmanhess (at) mtsgreenway.org’ to see if a spot has opened up.


The registration fee helps cover cost of the shuttle, t-shirt, route map, breakfast/lunch, and train ride.



Saturday, June 23, 2018
8:00am to late afternoon

Distance: 20-mile bike ride
Difficulty: moderate
Total Trip Size: 100-125 participants

We’ll meet in Duvall and catch a shuttle to North Bend for a local breakfast. Then we take a historic train ride to Snoqualmie Falls, where we’ll pick up our bikes (transported for you to Duvall) and start our bike ride along the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. There will be a local lunch in Carnation and then several farm visits (just off the trail!) as we bike back to Duvall.

Age Restrictions: 12 years old and up (see exemptions). All youth 16 or younger need to be accompanied by an adult.



  • Be able to bike at least 20 miles on a gravel trail. While the grade is gentle (it’s an old railroad line) it does have moderate difficulty because of the longer distance. We always encourage everyone to bike at their own pace, to enjoy the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley.
  • A mountain bike and helmet. Since the trail is packed gravel with occasional loose sections we recommend all riders use a mountain bike because of the wider tires and increased stability. Experienced riders who are comfortable biking in these conditions may use a hybrid bike. Road bikes (with their thin tires) are not allowed for safety reasons–it’s too easy to fall.
  • Need to rent a bike? Compass Outdoor Adventures in North Bend is offering our participants a discounted mountain bike rental of $50 for this trip and will bring them to the start location for you. Email us for details.

Once you are registered and paid, we will send you more detailed information about the trip. You can also check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
