In the middle of the busy “east side” is a 482-acre, second-growth forest park crisscrossed with more than 28 miles of trail. Such a wonderful find so close to Interstate 405! The trails are well maintained, though often muddy in the winter. The terrain is gently sloped and the trails are wide. Except on the park’s outside edges, you’d never know you weren’t deep in the forest. The land, a school trust property, was logged in 1880 to provide money for schools. Newcastle Trail went through this property connecting Redmond with the coal mines at Newcastle to the south. Logging and mining activity had stopped by the early 1930s, and an equestrian group transformed the skid roads into a network of riding trails. The Lake Washington Saddle Club has maintained the park since 1945, even though it is now a state park with a resident ranger. The Cascade Running Club hosts a 50K race here each January.
