Walk 5/25 Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Wednesday, May 25, 8:30am - 1:00pm

4-6 miles, minimal elevation gain

Walk 5/25 Snoqualmie Valley Trail

Put yourself in a peaceful space for a morning walk in the Cascade Foothills near North Bend. The S.V.T. is one of the finest rail-trails in the northwest, and we'll walk the beautifully forested stretch one-way between Rattlesnake Lake and Tanner Landing Park in North Bend. Walk up to 6 miles, with a bail-out point at 4 miles if you like.

Expected Conditions:

The Snoqualmie Valley Trail is open with no problems or obstacles. We'll start near Rattlesnake Lake, elevation 920 feet, and walk the wide, compact-gravel-surface trail on a slight downhill grade toward North Bend. This is a one-way walk, so I'll drop everyone off and then move the van to a point 4 miles down the trail. Stop there, or continue for another couple of miles to Tanner Landing Park, elevation 500 feet, the next pick-up spot.

Other Considerations:

Most any type of comfortable walking shoes should work OK here. There could be a few puddles or wet areas if the recent weather has been wet, but most of it should be just fine. Bring some water and snacks with you. There are no facilities along that stretch of trail, and probably few if any benches for resting, so you make time and space for stopping as you see fit. I don't have a lunch stop planned, but we may make a quick stop somewhere in North Bend before driving home.
