So, what's with the Powerline trail that runs through Education Hill? Is it, like, a real power line? Or is it a nature walk?

I keep hearing horror stories about traffic from Redmond Ridge to MS campus but I see the community is well-served by the Connector. Also there seem to be other possible routes? What about Novelty Hill area, a bit south of Redmond Ridge? I have to say, the Redmond Ridge homes seem to be on very small lots, but if you look at older stand alone properties around it, 2 acres seem to be standard.

Would like feedback and the local goss on either area. Cheers.

We hike the trails at Redmond Ridge all the time, though not so much when it's real muddy like now. There is one trail that does go under the high voltage power lines, but many branching off that are in deep woods, actually temperate rain forest, with lots of moss, ferns, Trilliums in spring and fascinating nurse logs/stumps. Traffic into Redmond and MS is terrible at commute times, but yes, there is bus service. Alternate routes are long and many miles out of the way, for example you can get to Woodinville-Redmond Rd and take 405 to 520, or even cross the valley to Duvall and go through Carnation and Tolt Hill Road to 202. Both are also very congested and many more miles so sticking it out on Novelty Hill/Union Hill/Avondale is still the best if not only way to go. Nothing wrong with living in the Novelty Hill area, and that does cut off part of the trip, and the older homes do have bigger lots with plenty of "horse acre" to 3 acre properties.
