The North Creek Trail links the cities of Bothell, Mill Creek and Everett, as well as the communities in between. The trail also provides access to the Sammamish River Trail, which connects to the Rail-Trail Hall of Fame Burke-Gilman Trail. Combined these three wonderful trails provide over thirty miles of trail to explore. The trail follows a wooded corridor with some gentle hills interspersed with wetlands-great for bird-watching. As of autumn 2011 the trail is broken into two disjointed segments.
The northern segment in Mill Creek runs for 2.5 miles between McCollum Pioneer Park off Route 96 and 164th St. SE. The Bothell segment runs for nearly 5 miles from north of Bothell at 214th St. SE south to the Sammamish River Trail just south of Route 522.
Another segment is in the works that will join the short distance between 208th Street SE and Bothell Everett Highway/SR 527 at 214th Street. In the meantime, to join the two segments cyclists must use on-street bike lanes on Bothell Everett Highway/SR-527. Note, these lanes in both directions are poorly marked (as of April 2011) and the segment of the highway between 214th St SE and 164th St SE has heavy traffic.
Parking and restrooms are available at the north end of the trail in McCollum Park (600 128th St. SE, Everett).
