TRAIL ALERT - Preston-Snoqualmie Trail Bridge #2 (about 0.75 miles east of the Preston-Snoqualmie Trailhead parking lot) has sustained serious damage that necessitated a full closure of the structure. During a heavy rainstorm in winter 2022, a large tree fell onto the bridge. In addition, several support piles shifted so that they are no longer supporting the bridge.
The bridge is slated for a full replacement, with construction for the new bridge scheduled for 2024. King County Parks is also evaluating if temporary repairs are possible to reopen the bridge in the interim.
No detour is available. The rest of the trail is still open for use in both directions.
Length: 7 miles. Surface - paved with soft surface shoulder.
