Wimpy Off-Road bike ride

Snoqualmie Valley Trail, North Bend to Rattlesnake Lake

Description: This is an easy ride on a former railroad, now called the Snoqualmie Valley Trail.

Starting in North Bend, our ride begins a barely perceptible grade past rows of blackberry bushes. Passing beneath Interstate 90 and then a short bridge over the rushing South Fork Snoqualmie River, the path begins its winding, 450-foot climb to Rattlesnake Lake. The ride is almost all in trees. We’ll stop at Rattlesnake Lake to rest and enjoy the view.

Mountain bikes and cross-bikes are okay, but skinny-tired road bikes are not recommended.

Cancel if raining, sprinkles we go.

Refreshments afterwards at a local watering hole.


Round trip distance: 14 miles RT


Difficulty:  Green, flat ride on fairly smooth hard pack dirt/gravel


Speed on flats: Leisurely, enjoy-the-view pace…maybe 8-10 mph?


Meeting Time:  10:00am, Saturday July 21st, 2018
