"Grand Ridge may soon become one of the more disappointing mountain bike trail casualties of Seattle area development. Located just outside Issaquah, the Grand Ridge Loop continues to shrink and change every year as more and more homes are constructed on the plateau above the rapidly growing bedroom community.
Cut through a forest of Douglas fir, western red cedar, alder, and sword fern, Grand Ridge offers challenging singletrack, technical climbs, and short, steep descents. Just a short distance from Seattle and even closer to the East Side, Grand Ridge is an excellent choice for quick evening rides and short adventures for riders with little time to hang out in the saddle. Trail surface: Pavement, gravel road, woodchip road, hard-packed dirt singletrack."
