Snoqualmie Valley Trail II Walking the old railroad grade from Carnation to Snoqualmie Falls Hike Length: 8 Miles Elevation Gain: 400 feet Hike Difficulty: Moderate Map: King County Bicycling GuideMap The Snoqualmie Valley Trail, built on the right-of-way of the former Milwaukee Road, offers easy walking through forest and farmland scenery. The gravel-surfaced trail is popular with bikers and horse riders, although you won’t see many on weekdays. The stretch between Carnation and Snoqualmie Falls is perhaps the best part of the trail, as it climbs high above the valley floor and passes vista points, fern-filled ravines with splashing creeks, and three scenic trestle bridges. The south facing slope that the trail traverses catches a lot of sun, making for pleasant walking on a clear winter day. The Tokul Creek Trestle and Snoqualmie Falls provide a dramatic twin finale for this otherwise low-key journey.
