Start your day in North Bend with a warm beverage at Pioneer Coffee. Make sure to visit the bathroom and enjoy local Twin Peaks art! Enjoy a stroll through the historic downtown and peruse fun stores like Birches and Selah Gifts. Walk a couple blocks over to the Northbend Visitors Center which doubles as the Mountain View Art Gallery.
Hop in the car and head north a few couple miles to Meadowbrook Farm. Continue on Boalch Ave. past the interpretive center and park at the next gravel pull off. Cross the street and follow the trail through the woods to a hidden meadow with views of Mount Si, and the beautiful art installation commemorating early Snoqualmie medicine woman Marie Louie. Sit at the watching place and contemplate the mountain, the seasons, and the long history of people and this land. The walk is a quarter mile round trip.
Next, drive five minutes north to downtown Snoqualmie to enjoy a number of art stops and unique stores and grab a bite to eat. Check in at the Bindlestick for another coffee/gallery stop. Also, be sure to check in at Wild Hare Vintage, the Art Gallery of SnoValley, Corners and the quirky Carmichael’s True Value. Stop in at the Snoqualmie Brewery for a good time and atmosphere.
After lunch, drive scenic Route 202 to 203 through the Snoqualmie Valley, heading downstream to historic Carnation. If you’re in the mood to stretch your legs, take a left into Tolt McDonald Park just before you arrive in the main downtown area. Take a leisurely and scenic walk across a suspension bridge, with a beautiful view of the Snoqualmie River. When you get to town, be sure to check out Tolt Yarn and Wool, Miller’s Mercantile and the Blue Iris.
Head north on 203 for your final stop, downtown Duvall. There are a number of unique stores such as Country Collections, the Duvall Flower shop, and Tuxedos.
