Finely manicured trails and a lack of climbing make Pioneer Park the perfect place for fretting first-time fat-tire enthusiasts. The park is home to 3 to 5 miles of criss-crossing trails that Mercer Island residents usually have to themselves. Located on the south end of the island, Pioneer Park covers 113 acres and is full of old-growth cedar, Douglas fir, big-leaf maple, and alder. Trail surface: Hard-pack dirt, mud, gravel. As one of the first luxurious neighborhoods in Seattle, Mercer Island might be best known for its “old” money and the power that comes with it.When I–90 was expanded in the late 80s/early 90s, Mercer Island residents threw so many attorneys and so much money against the project that it quickly became one of the most expensive 3-mile stretches of interstate in the country.
