Queen Ann biking information

Climbing Queen Anne Hill

A. Coming from downtown, heading north, there are two main routes: Taylor on the east side, and Olympic/10th on the west.

Taylor route

10/27/2010 Update: the bike lane up Taylor is now complete as well; this entire route is now marked all the way from Mercer and Taylor to Boston and Queen Anne.

B. From the east side, the simplest way is to ride the sidewalk along 99 until you reach a through street like Highland and connect to the Taylor route. However, for the adventurous, there's a quick way, the small trail that connects the Dexter turn-off from 99 to Taylor & Crockett. You probably will have to walk your bike, but it can be ridden. Here's what the entrance on the top of the hill looks like:
