Trail Description
About this trail
A seven-mile, multi-use trail that was built with considerable help from volunteers with the Washington Trails Association traverses the long and linear park, wandering through a variety of forest settings that provide habitat for bears, cougars, owls and other wildlife. The trail will eventually end at Duthie Hill Park, the home of the region's most-popular mountain bike skills park.

Review: This is a great alternative to Duthie. You can get out and pedal up some good climbs and be rewarded by some fun descents. Not designed for catching air, but had some speed and flow. Fairly wide trail, so you can comfortably get some speed. Just btw cautious of other users. Nothing super technical, but there are some good root drops, small rock gardens and right corners to keep you on your toes.

Review: Very well maintained trail with some good elevation change. Great way to add some extra miles to your Duthie Hill ride. Excellent XC trail.

Review: Place is the best! Nice 2 hour ride, start on south side of 90 in parking lot just east of Issaquah, ride up frontage road and onto grand ridge trail. Up to grand ridge drive, across the road continue up and then down and you reach duthie hill park. Then head back. This trail offers nice long steep climbs and lovely forest. Terrific air. This is the best place to ride for a quick workout near seattle.

Review: Over all fun trail. Though it can get pretty muddy down in the bottom during the off seasons.

Review: Grand Ridge is a popular trail and rightfully so - it provides riders a healthy variety of flow, climbing, and groomed singletrack. Keep your head up and aware of other riders as there is two way traffic and is commonly ridden as an out and back. Link the trail with Duthie Hill to add additional miles, variety and general awesomeness.

Review: An exceptional trail and well-worth a visit when paired with Duthie Hill. The volunteers carved a very natural flow with long, fast straightaways and gradual pitches for the extended climbs. I recommend riding from the southern end to Duthie Hill, explore Duthie and then return for a 20-25 mile day. The zenith of Grand Ridge is about 1/3 way up from the South, so you'll have a nice long climb waiting for you at the end of the day. The only shortcoming for both trails is the lack of a vista for the magnificent mountains around the Seattle area.

Review: be prepared to ride 7 miles straight up hill until you hit Duthie hill, this is a tough one on the legs if your not used to uphill climbs.
