Bridle Crest Trail
The Bridle Crest Trail runs through Westside Park to Marymoor Park. This half-mile section starting at Westside Park descends downwards along the top of a sloping ridge.
As you walk down the Bridle Crest Trail, you pass large thickets of blackberry bushes. Once in the forest, you will see many ferns and bushes, as well as large stands of Western Red Cedar, hemlock, and other tall conifers.
As you walk along the trail, notice the stumps of logged trees. If you look carefully at some of these stumps, you will see notches cut into the sides. These notches once held boards that loggers stood on in order to saw down the trees.
