Best on bicyle. The trail is paved and during the week, you can ride as fast as you like. We rode slowly because there is much to see. The homes along the lake shoreline are beautiful, each with private boat docks. At many intersections, car traffic yields to you! At the other end is Fremont, a cute University village. Stop at the Gas Works Park and ride to the top of the park's hill for a terrific view.

My wife and I rode this trail for the first time and were astounded at how well maintained and beautiful the trip was. A great way to see the city, lake washington, and the Woodinville wineries.
