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.
Easy, flat, nice views. Well maintained and paved.
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.
Look out for black bears bathing in pond by path. Close to Siemens.
