The Redmond Watershed is excellent for folks who have not spent a lot of time in the saddle. Climbing is almost nonexistent, and the trails are buffed almost as smooth as blacktop. On the main trails there are no roots or rocks to navigate, just a wide, smooth trail covered in pea-sized gravel. The riding is completely non-technical; the area is beautiful and full of wildlife. Deer, rabbits, black bears, woodpeckers, beavers, red-tailed hawks, great blue herons, chipmunks, and squirrels dwell in the forest and around the numerous creeks and swamps. Cougars and coyotes are occasionally spotted as well. Most wild animals will only attack if provoked or cornered; however, cougars have been known to attack small children who stray or are left alone. Trail surface: Pea-sized crushed gravel, hard-pack dirt, and mud.

This is a great place to do a quick run in the shade. It's only minutes from Microsoft, so it would be great for all the folks who are in town on biz. It was well marked and easy to navigate. There was a major contruction project that cut right thru the park when I was there, but it will be done soon enough.
