Kenmore-Sultan Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Head north from Kenmore on this serpentine Snohomish County tour that takes in Snohomish and Monroe before making the turnaround at Sultan, a tiny burg whose name is an anglicized version of Tsul-tad, a local Native American chief in the 1870s. In the late 1960s, this town hosted the Sky River Rock Festival and Lighter Than Air Fair, which featured, among others, Santana, the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and comedian Richard Pryor. Though much of this route’s road shoulders are narrow, the thoroughfares are lightly traveled and speed limits are generally low—35 miles per hour and below.
After a terrifically fun flatland traverse of the Snoqualmie-Skykomish floodplains, turn right onto High Bridge Road and enjoy a challenging series of winding rollers along and above the confluence of the rivers. This segment might seem a bit cruel, but hey, if you were looking for easy, you'd be playing golf."
