Water Tower Loop Details
WTA organized trail build at the top of the Issaquah Plateau. Horseback, hikers, and bikers frequent the trail. Additions to the trail forthcoming which will decommission the gravel road portion of Grand Ridge Trail and use a portion of Water Tower Loop as the primary route.
Take an opportunity before the leaves crowd your view to overlook Issaquah, Lake Sammamish, Eastgate, and Bellevue to the west. About 1/4 mile from the water towers (headed north on the trail loop) the prominence of Grand Ridge at just around 1,100 vertical feet is pretty cool as you don't get a similar feel anywhere on the plateau other than in the Highlands neighborhood beside the Safeway.

|Couple of down trees due to wind, can take your bike under them. Smaller branches down along the trail (ride overs or do your own trail maintenance)|

|Significant windfall. Made it ~1/2 way from S side clearing a few of the smaller branches. Made for a gentle reminder to always wear your lid on...|

|Bit dusty but not bad and predicted rain will make for great conditions later this week|
