“Gravel doubletrack through a charming forested gorge.”
— Eric Ashley
The trails at Padden Lake are multi-use and are open between 6:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Bikers are allowed on the trails, but they are frequented more by hikers, joggers, dog walkers, and equestrian users. With so many other trail users, this area is better suited to casual riding, especially given its close proximity to Galbraith Mountain. Dogs are required to be leashed except in designated areas.
A nice out-and-back addition to the Lake Padden Loop
. This trail travels through a small gorge and along a creek as it connects to 36th St. Even though it's a very mild and short trail, it offers pleasant views with tall shadowy trees.
