I have not gone up the east side of Novelty Hill, because my wife convinced me not to. I was doing a loop in the area involving Carnation and Duvall, returning to Union Hill. Her and her brother (they grew up near Carnation Farms) said that drivers tend to fly down Novelty Hill on that side rather recklessly. Does the bike lane go on that part of the hill now?
Instead, coming from Duvall I went up NE Woodinville-Duvall road the short distance to NE Old Woodinville Duvall road. It was kind of hairy, but once I got off the main road and onto 232nd it was great. That would get you up higher on Novelty.
Hope that made sense.
