Snoqualmie Bike Ride: Remlinger and Back 0 (0)

I cycled this route years ago, and intended to write about it at that time.

A few things may have changed since then, but it remains a good cycling route with a good stop at Remlinger Farms at the mid-point (when they reopen),

This route is also my first go-round with adding route sharing capacity. If you have a route you’d like to share with readers, you can do it!

Guillemot Cove Nature Preserve is one of my favorite Kitsap County day hikes, and great for kids (at least kids who will tolerate the uphill trek back from the beach). While you’re there, visit the Stump House which (legend has it) was a hideout for an outlaw in the 1800s and would have been my clubhouse as a kid if it had been in my neighborhood.
