My wife and I rode the Centennial today from Lake Stevens up to the Pilchuck Creek bridge where the trail currently ends.
The new trail closing the Anmar Gap is a nice change from riding on the highway. The new trail section takes you to the intersection of 67th Ave NE and 172nd St. NE. Once you go through that intersection, you are back on the old trail that parallels 67th Ave NE and crosses a lot of driveways. But the situation is 100% better than it was.
We also rode the new section of the trail north of Arlington the crosses over the Stillaguamish and is currently complete to the bridge at Pilchuck Creek where the trail is closed. The bridge looks to be mostly complete, and the signs still say opening in spring 2012. The new section is well done and a nice ride. When the full trail opens in the spring, you'll get almost 30 miles one-way from Snohomish up to the Skagit County line. Pretty sweet.
It was really a nice afternoon for a ride, and except for a few dog-walkers and joggers, we had the trail to ourselves.
