Rainier Trail, Issaquah

If trains are on your little one’s list of wheeled favorites, look no further than downtown Issaquah to chug alongside a slice of railway history. Running parallel to the former Lake Shore & Eastern Railway, Issaquah’s 2.5-mile Rainier Trail lets young riders practice their moves on the paved, minimal-traffic path or hop off and frolic on the real (inactive) railroad tracks at its southern side. Head north past Confluence Park towards the Darigold dairy plant; then come back for a tour of the Depot Museum with its historic engines and railroad exhibits.  

Post-cycling pit stop: Play at the train-themed Depot Park right next to the trail with its own mini chugger for little conductors; then grab some frozen yogurt at Yum-e Yogurt right around the corner.
