"You’ll find more than 12 miles of trails looping through the 574 acres of riverfront and highland parkland here, with access to another 27 miles on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail that pierces this park. Our recommended route sticks to the long stretch of fields and open forests lining the Snoqualmie River, leaving the remaining highland routes for you to explore on your own." Read more

"Follow the signs for the Cottonwood Trail, and head in a clockwise direction. After 1 mile, turn left and explore some of the more primitive trails, which include some steep climbs, some overgrown foliage, and a steep descent on the initial out-and-back section. Return to the rolling singletrack trails within the forest, and take the North Shelter Loop Trail back to the parking lot." Read more

Boy is this place big, many interconnecting trails and nothing is marked! The directions are very confusing and the map is not good. Be prepared to get lost. View at the top was pretty awesome though. There have been cougars sited on these trails so be aware.

This is the most poorly marked trail system I have ever ridden - NOTHING is marked. The first two groups of people I talked to laughed and said, "just expect to get lost".

Aside from that, the singletrack is fantastic - not too technical or grinding.

You could get lost in all the trails here. We had fun exploring very narrow home-made singletrack. This chapter describes the area well and has a detailed map of the network of trails here. Near Carnation and easy access from Seattle and Bellevue.
