A wide, car-free stretch of flat, fun riding, it winds gently through evergreen forest and between the rocky peaks of the Cascade Mountain foothills. Ride a short portion this morning from Cle Elum to Lake Easton for lunch, then on to Keechelus (Native American word meaning 'few fish') and Snoqualmie Summit.

("You won't find better views anywhere else this close to Seattle," crows the Washington Trails Association.) Ride to gorgeous Snoqualmie Falls, which you may remember from the TV series Twin Peaks. For the Snoqualmie People, the Falls are the place "where prayers were carried up to the Creator by great mists that rise from the powerful flow."

As an optional extra, a person traveling solo on any inn-to-inn trip may reserve a room for his or her exclusive use. This will guarantee you a private room and private bath every night. Unlike other tour companies, if you're willing to share a room, there is no extra charge for coming solo, no matter when you sign up for the tour - even if you wind up with a private room by default.
