Itinerary

Inclusive / Not Inclusive – lodging


Day 1: Ride the Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail to Keechelus Lake

The Palouse to Cascades Trail (formerly known as the John Wayne Pioneer Trail) is one of the longest rail-trail conversions in the United States, following the former railway roadbed of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroads for nearly 300 miles. Offering a wide, car-free stretch of flat, fun riding, it winds gently through evergreen forest and between the rocky peaks of the Cascade Mountain foothills. Ride a short portion this morning from Cle Elum to Lake Easton for lunch, then on to Keechelus Lake (a Native American word meaning ‘few fish’) and Snoqualmie Summit.
Meals: lunch and dinner Lodging: Summit Inn
Ability level: beginner

Day 2: Bike through the longest bike/pedestrian tunnel on your way to Snoqualmie Falls

This morning, ride through the world’s longest bike/pedestrian tunnel: a 2-mile long historic train tunnel on the Palouse to Cascades Trail. We’ll provide the lights! Continue riding downhill through evergreen forests all the way to Rattlesnake Lake. Thankfully, there are no rattlesnakes! The lake was named by Seattle area pioneer Arthur Denny after a road surveyor mistook the sound of seed pods rattling in the wind for one of the dangerous snakes. Hike up to the ridge. “You won’t find better views anywhere else this close to Seattle,” crows the Washington Trails Association. Ride to gorgeous Snoqualmie Falls, which you may remember from the TV series Twin Peaks. For the Snoqualmie People, the Falls are the place “where prayers were carried up to the Creator by great mists that rise from the powerful flow.”
Meals: lunch and dinner Lodging: Hilton Garden Inn, Issaquah
Ability level: beginner

Ride the Sammamish river trail to Woodinville, home to many of Washinton’s prime wine-tasting rooms.

This morning, ride to Woodinville, where you’ll find some of Washington’s best wine-tasting rooms. Ride onward to Bothell. Stay tonight and tomorrow at the Art Deco McMenamins Anderson School, where classrooms are now hotel rooms. Dinner’s on your own tonight; take your pick of its three onsite restaurants. If you like, take in a film at its onsite movie theater or hop in the pool for a dip.
Meals: Breakfast and lunch. Lodging: McMenamins Anderson School
Ability level: beginner


Day 4: Go wine tasting. Play a round of golf, or go for a bike ride, plenty of options today.

There are 100+ wineries in the Woodinville region. Lunch is on your own today, so visit and sample any that appeal. If you’d prefer, take a tour of a lavender farm or play a round of golf. Tonight: enjoy a final celebratory dinner with Chef Russell Lowell at Russel’s restaurant and loft, a food lover’s delight and the de facto late-night hangout for winemakers and people in the wine industry.
Meals: Breakfast and dinner. Lodging: McMenamins Anderson School
Ability level: beginner

Ride the paved bike path along Seattle waterways and visit the Ballard Locks and fish ladder.

Enjoy a final ride along the bike path, beside the Sammamish River and Seattle’s Lake Union. Kayak the waterways past the houseboats made famous by the movie Sleepless in Seattle. Jump back on the bikes for the 3-mile bike path ride to the Ballard Locks and fish ladder. After a final waterside lunch, head to the airport or your downtown hotel to extend your stay.
