Mill Creek Pipeline Trail

Mill Creek Pipeline Trail Professional Review and Guide

"If you want to experience the joy of riding on singletrack, but don’t want to scale entire mountains to do so, then you should try Mill Creek Pipeline Trail. The path follows an old water flume on the flank of Mill Creek Canyon where the bulk of the ride descends at nearly imperceptible grades. Three quick, rough descents, however, make the ride exciting for even veteran mountain bikers.

You’ll ride through tunnels of oak, maple, and pine and then cross treeless slopes that afford inspiring views of the canyon’s depths and of peaks in the Mount Olympus Wilderness. With four trailheads on the paved Mill Creek Canyon Road, the Pipeline Trail can be ridden as loops of varying difficulty as well. Trail surface: All singletrack. The loop options require use of paved road."

Great scenery; fast and smooth ST, but not at all challenging. Still, considering how close it is to the city, this is a worth-while ride for someone who doesn't have a lot of time, or for beginners to intermediates. I was not happy about the number of un-leashed dogs on the trail. Apparently, their owners think the leash law applies to everyone but them.
