Call it a walk out call it a hike but this almost 300 mile long trail is awesome that traverses essentially all of the ecosystems of the state except for Alpine. Impossible to get lost as well. Get out there and try it out.

This is a wonderful trail for biking with your friends. While it's fun to ride from top down, i recommend pedaling from Rattlesnake to Hyak and back.

I began riding my bike at the Rattlesnake area on the Iron Horse Trail. The trail is packed gravel most of the way at an approximate 2% grade heading east to the tunnel. It was a great workout, riding uphill for some 19 miles, and...More

This trail technically runs across the state, but is accessible from North Bend to Ellensburg (and Vantage?). Gravel requires wide bike tires. There is I-90 noise almost the entire distance even though most of the time you can't see the freeway. Most of the distance,...More

I ran this trail for the Jack and Jill Marathon. It is hard packed and the views are wonderful. Gradual downhill that you don't realize until you get to the very end of the trail. Bring lots of water and food but well worth travelling...More

This trail is groomed for cross country skiing in the winter and goes along the Keechelus reservoir. There are some primitive campgrounds along the trail. In the summer the trail is open to hikers and bikers and the old Snoqualmie Tunnel is open to both...More

We walked through the tunnel (almost alone) and back (others, too) It was cool and drippy in places. We could almost walk without a light as we could see the dot of light way at the other end. We also bicycled through a few years...More

Not sure exactly what direction you're heading. Never heard of "rattlesnake", and no trailhead or town by that name. I rode west from Ellensburg last summer. Trail in great shape. While you're within sight or sound of... More
