Snoqualmie Bike Ride: Remlinger and Back

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!

This post covers a Snoqualmie cycling route that I did years ago. I intended to write about it then, but I didn’t have much time for blogging endeavors. So, many years later, here, the post finally is!

This post, however, needs a bit of updating. Previously, it had a GPX track and map attached — we discontinued that mapping functionality and I have yet to re-enter the route. But I’m keeping this post up so I can come back and do so at a later time.

Snoqualmie is a charming town — and not just for its well-known waterfall! While you’re there, visit the railway museum (I’m talking about when things open back up, to clarify.) And stay and have breakfast at Salish Lodge if you want a treat.

And bring your bike. Of course, Snoqualmie has plenty of attractive cycling areas, most notably the Snoqualmie tunnel. However, if you want an out-and-back route that lands you at Remlinger Farms at its midpoint, this is a good one!

This post is also my first (OK, maybe my second) attempt at hosting route maps on this website. If you have any favorite routes you’d like to share, you can try it out. If you do, keep in mind that it’s currently “beta.” I won’t be writing a post for every route that gets entered here.

But to get back to the ride! Head out from the town of Snoqualmie. Parking is usually available on the street, near the Northwest Railway Museum. From there, your journey heads past Salish Lodge and passes some farms along the way. It cuts through some neighborhoods, with a stop and turnaround at Biringer. Do it once things open back up; then, you can stop for fresh produce, coffee, or lunch before you head back.

Do this ride in the middle of Summer, and you’ll find berries along the way.

The ride is relatively hilly — I was in excellent cycling shape at the time (and don’t believe the map data which suggests I went 2mph!.) But it was a fun day with a treat at the midpoint.

The halfway point!

Things to see along the Snoqualmie cycling route:

  • Salish Lodge. If you can’t stay, it’s still a great place to have lunch. If you want to have their famous breakfast, contact them in advance.
  • Northwest Railway Museum: See the steam engine and, if you’re there between April and October, you might want to interrupt your bike ride for a train ride?
  • Remlinger Farms: Shop for produce, visit the farm, have some coffee, and rest before you head back.
  • Snoqualmie Falls: Well, of course! If you have some time and extra energy, lock up the bike and take the hike down to the falls.

Have you done this ride? Do you have any other rides in the area you’d recommend? Feel free to share!
