In the map shown below, you can see portions of the Green River Trail and the Interurban Trail. While the Green River Trail follows the meandering path of the river, the Interurban Trail parallels a BNSF railroad line and takes you through the industrial heart of the Kent and Auburn valleys. The bike trail maps include parking areas and restroom facilities along the route.
King County Regional Trail System
The King County Regional Trail System contains over 175 miles of trails for bicycling, hiking, walking, and horseback riding. The trail system covers an area from Bothell to Auburn, and from Seattle to the Cascades. King County is actively planning and developing a planned network of regional trails totaling more than 300 miles in length. Some of the existing trails, such as the Preston-Snoqualmie Trail, are primarily non-paved and travel through rolling countryside.
One of the most spectacular regional trails is the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. This rails-to-trails path runs from Duvall to North Bend, and connects up with the Iron Horse Trail in North Bend. The trail winds through farmland and verdant countryside, and crosses several railroad trestle bridges that have been converted for biking. In addition to seeing wildlife along the trail, you can stop and look at the emus in their pen at Remlinger Farms in Carnation.
