St. Edward State Park / Big Finn Hill County Park Professional Review and Guide

"St. Edward State Park is just off of Lake Washington but you don't get any real lake views by bike except at the bottom of the Seminary Trail (which is actually a dirt road). The views are of the trails before you, the trees and brush, ferns, and some blackberry brambles. Level and rolling trails are punctuated by a few short bursts and maybe a little walking. It's fun, woodsy riding on hard-packed trails in the midst of the masses.

Nearby civilization is not always bad; though the background noise you hear will be auto traffic, the trails are only a few pedal strokes from a mid-ride snack or a post-ride beverage! The kiosk by the parking area notes interesting facts about the park and the history of the former seminary. Read about it when you come; it's all well and good, but the really interesting stuff is the fun mountain-biking the area affords. Scenery: Deep forest trails amid suburban backdrop."

This was the first time I ever went on a bike trail and it was very fun. I would recommend this trail to anyone - even with little to no biking trail experience!

I come from Marin and am used to obstacles like cliffs, rock/rooty single track. I arrived not expecting anything and left amazed! There is a lot of beauty, technical opportunity, and cardio packed into several little 3.5-11 mile total loop(s) single track. It is extremely customizable. You can go for a quick hour ride or spend all afternoon there.

This is a great set of trails to get people started mt. biking on. It has a good combination of climbs, bridges, teeter-totters, and downhills. I would recommend these trails to everyone. They make a great after work quick ride, or longer just play and have fun.

Nice place to ride since it is right in town. There is a variety of terrain, with some good "play" areas of bridges and ramps and logs. Watch out in the afternoons and early evenings as there are a lot of walkers and runners as well as Mtb riders!

This is a good, quick ride close to the city. Also fun at night. Many trails for riders of different ability. YOU DO NOT NEED A NORTHWEST FOREST PASS TO RIDE HERE!
