The Sammamish River Trail skirts the Army Corps of Engineers river that connects Lake Sammamish to Lake Washington. It connects to the East Lake Sammamish Trail at Marymoor Park and runs north through Redmond, the Bicycle Capitol of the Northwest, past Chateau St. Michelle, Columbia, and other wineries, Redhook Brewery and Wilmot Park in Woodinville, Blythe Park and Bothell Landing in Bothell, and meets up with the Burke-Gilman Trail at the top of Lake Washington in Kenmore to round out the famous Lake Washington Loop.
It serves as the "interstate" for bicycle commuters not allowed to cross Lake Washington on SR 520 between Seattle and the Eastside. It hosts many walking, running, and charity events such as the American Lung Associaton Seattle Marathon.

Rode the Sammamish River Trail on my trike and it was fabulous!
I love the way this trail meanders along the east Sammamish river bank and wraps around nature and residential establishments along the river...Great photography, especially at sunset! I rode my Greenspeed trike and even though the road is gravel, it ...
We rode this trail out and back from Maryville Park on a Friday. It is now all asphalt, no dirt. Lots of comfortable stops, drinking fountains and restrooms. Surprisingly almost all flat and beautiful green along a sparkling river.
