Lake Sammamish State Park is a 512-acre day-use park with 6,858 feet of waterfront on Lake Sammamish. The area around the lake was an important culture zone for local Indian tribes for centuries. The park provides deciduous forest and wetland vegetation for the enjoyment of visitors. A salmon-bearing creek and a great-blue-heron rookery are additional features.
6/14/2016 (Tuesday) - Trail is perfectly and completely paved, broad, good lake view. Not many users on weekdays. Sammamish Landing (about 1.6 miles from Marymoor trailhead) has a string of tiny-sized beaches for touching water or swimming (no life guard). There are picnic tables with cover, but no parking place. There are private property (houses and beaches) and facilities between the trail for public use and the lake, so trail users may not be able to see the best lake view in some sections.
ANGIE Y. on East Lake Sammamish Trail
Beautiful peek-a-boo views, even better when reconstruction work is done, right now part of the trail is shared with the road. Did this trail as a half-marathon between Marymoor Park Redmond and Lake Samm Park in Issaquah. You pass between road and houses--no access to lake at this time due to trail repair.
