"This bike ride around Lake Sammamish offers more than a clockwise spin around a picturesque lake. It starts out as a flat jaunt on a rail trail that passes among expensive lakefront homes, climbs to lake overlooks from the hills above, and ends with a screaming downhill run to the start. This northern section of trail was the first to be widened and paved, followed by a section in Issaquah in 2013. Plans call for the seven or eight miles in between to be paved as well. If trail crews are paving during your ride, expect to detour onto the wide shoulder of East Lake Sammamish Boulevard as you continue south. Your first unobstructed views of the lake emerge after passing the lake-side woods at the north end." Read more
