Who knew there were such interesting urban hikes right in the center of Bellevue? The 12K route gets its name from a short section of ups and downs on a power line trail. There is also a long staircase going up to Bellevue College, but otherwise much of this route is flat. This walk includes wooded trails, stairs, residential streets, sidewalks, loose gravel trails and some hills. NOTE: The 7K route does not include the Roller Coaster or set of stairs leading up to Bellevue College.
