Highlights Lovely single dirt trail in the woods!
Ebike friendly ? I did not see any signs specifically posted regarding ebikes and did not having trouble with (slowly) riding mine there, many trails do consider ebikes "motorized."
Pet friendly ? You can bring your dog on a leash.
Accessible? No. The paths are dirt and uneven, there are roots, and the boardwalks can be slippery when they are wet.

  • Min altitude 52 ft
  • Peak 174 ft
  • Climb 167 ft
  • Descent 151 ft

This is a dirt trail with some sections of boardwalk that goes from Battle Point Park on Bainbridge Island to the Grand Forest. If you want to continue on, you can head through Grand Forest West and on to Grand Forest East.

You'll find this one commonly listed for "gravel biking." And, to be sure, I did see someone (besides me) doing this on a gravel bike. However, it's not a gravel road -- at least not the portion I did, which was singletrack. Easy for someone with good off-road skills on their gravel bike or with a mountain bike. But not to this on-road cyclist's liking on a gravel bike as I was just recovering at the time AND this was my first time going off-road after adding beefier tires.

But it's a lovely trail -- I know I will return when I want a short hike OR I'm ready to tackle some (non-gravel) trails on my gravel bike.

This segment is listed, here, as "one way" -- which is .9 miles, approximately, but you'll likely want to go both for a hourney of just a bit under 2 miles.

Trail Turn

Altitude: 0 ft
Address: 5769 NE Tolo Rd, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110, USA

A short way in, the trail turns onto a dirt road...but it's well-marked.

Battle Point Park Parking Lot

Altitude: 0 ft
Address: 11299 Arrow Point Dr NE, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110, USA

This is the parking lot at Battle Point Park -- probably the best place to park for starting this route. There's a walking trail that goes to the trail start point.
