Issaquah Highlands Trail


 This trail provides a way to get from Issaquah to the Issaquah Highlands without braving highly-trafficked roads. It begins at the eastern end of Sunset and leads up next to the road along a narrow separated shoulder, then becomes a full-width paved trail that goes all the way up to Issaquah-Fall City Road at the junction of Issaquah-Pine Lake Road/ Highlands Drive.
The narrow trail leading next to Sunset up to the cloverleaf (don't worry, it gets better!)
