Written Directions

This route starts May Valley Rd SE and Coal Creek Parkway. Follow May Valley for 1.5 miles and be sure to turn left to stay on May Valley. Follow it down for another 4.5 miles or so and turn Left on to Issaquah-Hobart Rd SE at the light. This will take you a few mile through Downtown Issaquah and onto I-90 East. It's just a couple of miles on I-90 to Exit 22 for Preston/Fall City. Turn Left at the end of the ramp and then the next Right to get on SE High Point Way. This will turn into Preston-Fall City Rd SE, just follow it until it ends (about 5-6 miles) and you will be in Fall City. Here you can grab a bite to eat at the Fall City Roadhouse, Small Fryes, or the Last Frontier Saloon. After you fill up, head 13.5 miles West on WA 202 toward Redmond. From there you can connect to the Lake Sammamish routes, stop at Marymoore Park, or connect to WA 520 and I-405.

Scenery

The route winds through tree lined roads through the hills, rural farm land, and interstate highways. This ride will give you a little of everything.

Drive Enjoyment

For the most part the roadways are well maintained and have many sweeping curves. Beware that the majority of the route is through residential areas and many vehicles can be encountered entering the roadways while dragging a portion of their gravel driveways with them.

Tourism Opportunities

Issaquah and Fall City have many great restaurants and stores. The route has many fuel stations along the way, although most motorcycle fuel tanks should not need to be topped of for this route.
