Easy beginning XC loops, with a lot of horse- and hiking-only trails. Great family ride, since nearly everyone can do it.

I came across it by accident, so I'm not really sure. Find it on a map or ask someone who lives in Redmond. It's practically on the Tolt Pipeline.

Summary:
sounds like a good place to take my beginner girl friend. to bad the directions are vague. i'll check it out. on a side note: its weak, lame, not responcable and inmature to ignore closed signs. it makes us all look bad to yuppy soccer moms, horse owners, the parks department and all the other people with the money and power. dont be a dork and ruin it all for everyone else

Recommended Route:
i was hoping to find a good course for a beginner. instead of this being a trail review it has turnd into a complaining fourm

Other recommended trails in the same area:
finn, paradise, tiger

Summary:
This a great beginners ride, and you can access a lot of nice scenic areas off of it. It's a great ride if you're pulling a trailer with little ones. I get a good work outhere, but if I want single track fun, then there are other local rides which are better. As I can ride it out of my house and get a quick hour workout out of it I ride it at least once a week in the nicer times of the year. I love the comments here about the stuck up microsofties. You obviously weren't in all the city council meetings I was in with all the other Microsoft Mountain Bikers begging them not to take our trails away. We loved hitting Novelty on the weekdays as a quick break from work, and then back at it. They took these trails away in the fall of 1994 they were closed, long before the big boom. I should know I live next door literally, and was pissed I couldn't ride anymore. If you want to blame anyone blame the old money horse riders who didn't want to share the beautiful trails. But please don't talk when you obviously have no clue what is you talk about, I was at all the council meetings, I stood up and spoke for the mountain bikers, where the hell were you?

Recommended Route:
The main trails. Please don't make it worse by going on trails marked not for bikes!

Summary:
Just wanted to add a correction to FM's review... THEY DON'T ALLOW DOGS IN THERE EITHER. Now let me see, horse trails at the Redmond Watershed, Bridle Trails State Park, Cougar Mountain Regional Park, all of which have large acreage. Boy, I wish I could afford a horse. I wonder what they'll take away next? Too many northwesterners have a "this is mine" attitude, hence the lack of any waterfront trails in the Seattle area (compared to California which offers MILES of public access beachfront, in the hearts of San Diego and Los Angeles no less). I'll get off my soap box now.

Recommended Route:
horse trails

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ride Tiger or Tolt before it gets taken away too.

Summary:
I'm writing mostly because I find the other reviews so snide and offensive. This park may have been much nicer in the "old days", but it is what it is now. I come to the park more to run than to ride, and it's true that the trails that are closed to bicycles are wonderful, narrow winding trails that I'd love to ride on, but don't. It's easy enough to spend an hour on a bicycle in the park proper, without getting off the trails that are open to bicycles. There are enough in the way of little hills and curves to make that an interesting ride; at the same time you can bring a beginner along without worrying about them hurting themselves. The park is far from crowded. I usually run for 1 to 2 hours, and rarely see even half a dozen people during that time. I feel incredibly fortunate to have discovered this little gem of a park (by accident, on a ride that started on the Puget Power Trail, which it also connects to).

Recommended Route:
There is primarily one (open to bicycles) trail through the park proper. It is also possible to connect to the Tolt Pipeline trail. Most of the trail is in good condition, even in the winter. It's not a technical ride. There are a few more challenging sections in some of the connecting routes in and out of the park.

Summary:
The bike trails suck. The Horse Trails are good, but the stuck up Microsoft people will probably crap a brick if they saw you on the wrong trail.

Recommended Route:
Any that say Horse/Hiker only.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Tiger Mtn., McDonald Park, Finn Hill Park
