Muckraker is a trail that roughly parallels the railroad tracks but follows the hillsides as they near the tracks or draw back from. The trail has wooden bridge sections over small creeks and water outlets. These bridges are VERY slick when wet as you'll likely find out. The trail does not have great drainage and has a large amount of water pressure from the hillside adjacent to it.

Best ridden in late summer and fall.

Access Info

Access the trail by climbing up from the dog park, or joining the trail system from the road North of the tracks.

Disclaimer

This trail occurs on private property (Boeing). No issues with access, but you'll be charged with trespassing if you try to sue for injuries.
