Route Description for Maple Valley Gnome Trail
How many gnomes can you spot on the Maple Valley Gnome Trail? This cheerful easy hike is perfect for families with kids and can be tacked on to a weekend trip to the farmers market without much exertion required. Look for the gnomes hiding in the foliage and see how many you manage to spot.
Begin from the farmers market parking lot. You’ll want to get onto the Market Trail and you can do so from a couple of the junctions on the road, but this route follows the Legacy Loop to get there. Walk northwest on the road to the trail, keep left, and then keep right. On the Legacy Loop, stay left onto Market Trail and then find the entrance to the Gnome Trail. It’s a quick little loop that you can do either way, retracing your steps back to the parking lot once you’re sufficiently gnome-d.
