Fall City-Red Barn Loop (Moderate)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
A gentle mosey in the Snoqualmie River Valley, with a stop for a quick look at Chinook Bend Natural Area roadside displays on the way out, and an option for refreshment at Starbucks in Carnation on the way back.

Directions to the start: From Seattle take I-90 to Exit 22 for Preston. Turn left at the top of the ramp, then right at the next intersection. Continue to Fall City. Bear right at the T in Fall City to cross the Snoqualmie River. Go around the traffic circle onto northbound State Route 203 toward Duvall and Monroe. Make an immediate left onto Neal Road, across from the Fall City Bistro, and into the gravel lot at Fall City Community Park.
If roads are wet, the rooster-tails from bare tires are a safety issue for other riders, so please come with real fenders and a long mudflap in back.
The listed phone will not be answered on the morning of the ride. If weather conditions meet the "Showers cancel" criterion, I will post a ride-cancelled note in Comments, below, at least 2 hours prior and not go to the start. Ice or snow will also cancel the ride. If the weather looks iffy, please check here before leaving for the ride.
