Enjoy a beautiful 4 mile loop hike through the protected wooded landscape of the Redmond Watershed Preserve. The trail is wide and with gentle slopes adding up to just under ~400 feet of gain over 4 miles. We will be targeting a pace of 2 miles per hour.

 We'll start our hike from the Redmond Watershed Preserve parking lot where there is a clean and well maintained restroom. We'll start out on the Trillium trail for 2 miles before we loop around and connect to the Pipeline Regional Trail and head back towards the parking lot.

 This hike offers beautiful views of protected landscape including second growth forest views, riparian lands, ponds, and small streams. While the trail is shared between many uses, including equestrian, I have generally found it to be low traffic and peaceful without many other folks to pass.
