One of the longest regional trails in King County, and one of the most rural is the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. Once an extension of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad connecting Everett in the north to the main east-west line heading over the Cascade Mountain range, the converted rail-trail now hosts walkers and bikers looking for a rural adventure.
The trail meanders past working farms as well as preserved open space areas, and connects to the cross-state Palouse to Cascades Trail in Iron Horse State Park. Points of interest include Tolt-MacDonald Park, Meadowbrook Farm, Three Forks Natural Area and the Tokul Trestle.
The 1911 Tokul Trestle wooden train trestle spans a 400-foot-wide gorge and sits 120 feet above Tokul Creek. It is now part of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. View drone footage of the Tokul Trestle
