The Snoqualmie Valley Trail is closed at a bridge south of Carnation until March 2021. Here are two suggested detours. The shorter one requires riding on WA-203 for about a mile, which may not be a pleasant experience. The longer detour takes River Rd and other mostly quiet roads to Fall City, and packs all the trail’s climbing into the last mile!
This week 00918 Seattle to Portland, 314 km, was added thanks to Jeff Loomis’ work. Since this route was fairly popular I am attempting to get the reversed Portland to Seattle route added as a new route. That will save everyone wanting to ride PtS from doing the work themselves to reverse the route.
This week #01233 Tacoma-Port Orchard-Tacoma was revised. The direction of the route was reversed to eliminate some unsafe left turns, and portions were moved to quieter parallel roads.
A control was added to #03387 U Village-Carnation in the Redmond-Kirkland area to provide a more convenient starting point for Eastside denizens.
In other news, reconstruction of the Spruce Railroad Trail portion of the Olympic Discovery Trail along the north side of Lake Crescent is almost complete. It should open to the public this month. This will provide a much safer and less stressful route around Lake Crescent than US-101 along the south side of the lake. https://www.peninsuladailynews.com/news/spruce-railroad-trail-refurbished/
