Bellevue borders the eastern shore of Lake Washington and is the location of many corporate offices and hotels. Accessed from much of Bellevue is the terrific Lake to Lake Trail system that goes between Phantom Lake and Larson Lake. This trail actually connects 9 parks and tends not to be very crowded. The trail is approximately 10 miles long and winds through a few thickets, a small bog, a terrific stand of old growth firs and follows a brook that eventually becomes a glorified trench. Your best bet is to choose a section of the trail closest to your where you’re staying or working.
Many hotels are off the 405 near the Mercer Slough section of the trail, just west of I-405 and north of I-90.
