“A steady uphill alongside active rail that heads into the back of Boeing, feat. rolling terrain.”— Judith Mayer
Keep an eye out for a sharp, hairpin L turn at the top of the climb, and head about 1/8 mi down the utility road. You'll see a thinly defined 'trail' through the bushes that line the path. This shorter trail comes out by a holding pond. Keep this pond tight on your left, and you'll enter the forest and find yourself presented with a myriad of trails. The trails are obvious but unmarked. This route mostly uses the Western Trail on the way back to the northern end of the park. All of the smaller trails were created by mountain bikers and runners.
The dog park located nearby has port-a-potty that is always clean. There is a coffee shop where visitors can purchase espresso and baked goods, chocolates and a pizza parlor located 4 blocks away, and it is possible to catch the ferry about 6 blocks away.
