Sammamish River Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Sammamish River Trail skirts the river that connects Lake Sammamish to Lake Washington. Along the way, enjoy views of the water, the Cascade foothills, and lush wooded areas. It's entirely paved, but a parallel soft-surface trail between Redmond’s Marymoor Park and Northeast 175th Street in Woodinville is available for equestrians.

In Marymoor Park, a short connecting trail links it to the 11-mile East Lake Sammamish Trail, and a little farther north it meets the Bear Creek Trail that heads east and offers access to the restaurants and shopping of Redmond Town Center.

The trail continues north through Redmond, then passes wineries, Redhook Brewery, and Wilmot Gateway Park in Woodinville. It ends in Bothell, where it meets the Burke-Gilman Trail, a Hall-of-Fame Trail that extends down to Seattle.
