Bridle Trails State Park between Kirkland and Bellevue does make for a nice escape into the woods if you don't want to leave the city. You need a Discover Pass or $10 for the day as usual for a state park. Near the parking lot...More

Close to Urban areas, yet definitely Wilderness- like. Lovely Trails, well marked, even some elevation gain in places. Variety of loop Walks available. Even possible to visit horse stables, or sometimes, opportunity to observe horses in training. Clean Toilet facilities available at the start of...More
