I stumbled onto this trail a few years ago on a long run with some friends. It is great for those that live on the Eastside! The one way I have found to access it is along the gas pipeline on Tannehill Dr just North of 969/East MLK. 

The trail follows the pipeline for just under 1 mile and then you have the option to move onto single track or stay on the pipeline trail. If you look at the map and see the straight line, that is the pipeline. There is a flat jeep road that parallels the pipeline that is where you run.
