Paradise Valley Conservation Area Trails
Located 1.5 miles east of Hwy 522 on Paradise Lake road in Maltby, WA (just North of Woodinville). The county bought the land as a Conservation area (about 800 acres) for wildlife and wetlands protection around 2003 and closed access to the whole area. After several years and a lot of work primarily by local Mountain Bikers a portion of the area was re-opened with re-routed more environmentally friendly trails. The area consists of approx. 12 miles of trails although only about 8 miles of trails for biking. There are a few walking only trails (please respect these) and one bike only trails but most are open to bikes, hiking and horses. The Mainline trail is fairly smooth but does have some light rooty sections and two slight hills. It does not make a loop requiring either backtracking or taking other trails (which are much rootier and twistier) back to the main parking lot. Most of the other trails are fairly rooty with lots of twists and turns and only a few climb/descents. The trails are primarily somewhere between advanced beginner and intermediate in difficulty with the main challenge being roots, lots of exposed roots. Recent trails work in the past few years has eliminated much of the mud that had been a real issue during the winter here in the Pacific North Wet.

Rider questions

Q: Hello! I just started the family mountain biking, and everyone loves it. I am 46, wife 40, daughter 10, son 8. i am looking for a few trails in Washington (we live in Seattle) to explore. We are not technical riders and are learning. We've done the paved trails like Sammamish River, but ready for some dirt. Can anyone recommend some very easy rides for kids 10 and 8?
A: what size wheels do their bikes have? With my kids they had/have a really hard time with the roots with 20" wheels. 24" wheels make it much easier for them. Most of Paradise can be challenging for beginners, mostly due to the amount of exposed roots. Duthie has some nice beginner trails like Bootcamp. Also Big Finn Hill has far less roots and smoother trails. St. Edwards would also be a good area to start with.

Q: Is this trail good for toddlers riding on the back of your bike or in a trailer?
A: The first half of the Mainline trail is wide enough that a trailer might be okay, but even it has enough roots that I don't think it would work well. Plus you'd be limited to a short section of trail, just out and back to the parking lot. Most of the trails here are very narrow with lots of roots and tight twists and turns. Great for some, not much fun for others.
