“A rail-to-trail conversion that features a two-mile tunnel, four tall railroad trestles, and scenic views of the valley.”— Rick Oakley
- Bring a charged light and some extra layers. You'll need it for the very long, dark, and cold tunnel.
- Before you start running, make sure to leave a retrieval car at the end of the trail. Unless you want to run all the way back.
- Snoqualmie Tunnel is closed from October to April. Snow and ice are common on the trail in the winter, and the trail passes through avalanche chutes east of Bandera.
Camping is also possible, with campsites located at Alice Creek and Carter Creek. Bring $12 cash to complete the on-site self-issue.
