Cross Kirkland Connector
The Cross Kirkland Corridor is a dirt/ gravel 5.75 mile segment of the Eastside Rail Corridor and is owned by the City of Kirkland. It meanders roughly north/ south through the city through neighborhoods, business parks and woods. In some places (especially the section east of I-405) the gravel is old railroad ballast rock and is hard to ride through, though the city is planning improvements in the near future.
The trail begins here off 108th Ave NE just north of the S. Kirkland P&R
0 = none/ the worst
5 = average
10 = excellent
