Description

The Grand Forest East Main Loop is a singletrack beauty that cuts through pristine forest in the heart of Bainbridge Island. There are some slight hills in the main loop, but for the most part the trail is pretty flat. There are many cross trails that give you options to extend your run to other parks on Bainbridge Island, but if you just want to stay on the main loop just follow the very helpful signs at each junction.

On the south side of the park at 9594 Mandus Olson Road NE is the largest parking lot and easiest way to access the park. There's a second smaller parking area which will hold only two cars that is on north side about 0.75 mile south of Koura Rd.
