Spend 5 days on car-free bike paths exploring the very best of the Pacific Northwest and Seattle!

Explore Woodinville’s vineyards and gardens, wine tasting rooms, and distilleries. The perfect escape for those seeking easy cycling and/or who dislike riding with traffic, this rails-to-trails bike path tour takes you all the way from the woodlands of the Cascade Range downhill to wine country and into the heart of Seattle’s waterfront.

The John Wayne Pioneer Trail is one of the longest rail-trail conversions in the United States, following the former railway roadbed of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad for nearly 300 miles. 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.”
