The Snoqualmie Valley Regional Trail is a King County administered trail that connects with the John Wayne Pioneer Trail in Iron Horse State Park. The 29-mile (47 km) trail follows a portion of the former alignment of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad's Everett Branch (Cedar Falls-Everett, later shortened to Monroe, WA).
The trail begins at Rattlesnake Lake outside of North Bend and ends at McCormick Park in Duvall.
Rattlesnake Lake to Reinig Bridge
The trail parallels the Cedar Falls Road before it heads east passing Rainbow Lake and down through the Boxley Creek drainage where a trestle bridge crosses a tributary of Boxley Creek. The trail intersects the eastern edge of Riverbend subdivision and crosses South Fork of the Snoqualmie River and then makes its way under I-90 and crosses North Bend Way and makes its way through North Bend and out through Mt. Si Golf Course to Reinig Bridge at SE Reinig Road. Rough distance : 9.79 miles.[better source needed]
Reinig Bridge to Tokul Creek Road
Reinig Bridge crosses the Snoqualmie River and goes down a short flight of 15 steps to Meadowbrook Way Se near the intersection of SE Reinig Road. Two routes connect to the railroad grade, one via 396th Dr SE, the other on Mill Pond Road.
Tokul Creek Road to McCormick Park, Duvall
From Tokul Creek Road the trail heads west (the trail unofficially continues in an unimproved state for a quarter-mile east of Tokul Creek Road before hitting a gate at a property boundary). A mile west on the trail from Tokul Creek Road the trail crosses Tokul Creek Trestle, where deep below runs Tokul Creek gorge. From there the road parallels Fall City Road through Carnation to the city of Duvall. Rough distance : 18.4 miles.[better source needed]
