Consider this rails-to-trails part of a package duo with the East Lake Sammamish Trail, which begins just .02 miles north of the ELST’s Issaquah endpoint. The trail offers paved, gravel, and some dirt paths that can be uneven and muddy depending on the time of year, but is a generally pleasant ride as part of the Mountains to Sound Greenways. Beginners should prepare for one short steep section (don’t be ashamed to walk your bike if you need to!). The trail continues on to the Preston-Snoqualmie Trail for a few more miles at the end.
Trail Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Starting Point: East Lake Sammamish Trail (near NW Gilman Blvd), Issaquah
End Point: Preston-Snoqualmie Trail (SE 47th St off of Preston-Fall City Rd), Preston
