Maintained gravel roads with long climbs.
Though this trail is a well maintained gravel road for most of its length, it is an intermediate ride because of some long steep hills. You will also find some fun singletrack branching off from this trail. One highlight of this trail is to ride it when the Salmon are spawning. There are several creeks crossing under bridges and they are packed with exhausted salmon trying to make it the last bit to their spawning grounds. Because of this, it is essential you use the bridges and don't cross through the streams. This trail gets heavy equestrian traffic so be polite.
O miles turn right onto Sammamish River Trail.
.3 miles turn right onto the rough gravel Tolt Pipeline Trail.
.6 miles cross the road and head up the extremely steep trail on the other side.
1.1 miles This is the most technical section of the trail. The gravel road ends here and a steep winding singletrack drops down to a busy street below. There is no shoulder on the road and no way you can see cars coming or they can see you. So do everyone a favor and walk down this section of trail.
3.5 miles the trail levels out and crosses three streams. This is where you can see the spawning salmon if your lucky.
From here, just keep going straight following the pipeline.
