“A great route that climbs from Issaquah to Duthie Hill Park and back.”— Daniel Grillo
This route is mapped as a full out-and-back, but it's also possible to ride it as a shuttle if you leave a car at the main Duthie parking lot.
The bottom of the trail climbs sharply away from the Issaquah-Preston Trail to gain the ridge and then enjoy the rolling terrain up to a road crossing. Cross the road and continue onto the singletrack up a bit further before beginning the descent on the other side. Stay right at a fork after a long, straight, fast section, weaving your way down and crossing a slippery bridge.
Do a little bit of climbing and continue across more flat sections before hitting more downhill, bringing you to the Mike O Puncheon Bridge (built by the WTA in 2012) and a short climb to the road separating the Grand Ridge Trail from the Duthie Access Road.
From here you, could go explore the great trails of the Duthie Hill Intro Lap, head left on the Duthie Access Path (if you left a vehicle at the top), or head back the way you came for lots more singletrack climbs and descents.
