Series of wooded trails along Evans creek in Sammamish, WA.
It's short and some areas are not covered. Family friendly if kids can walk. There is hardly any elevation.
Perfect walk for those who have a small dog like my Yorkshire Terrier...:)
Excellent trail. Always in good condition and never too crowded.
Short and flat. Quick trail to stretch your legs in the lowlands.
3/31/2016 (Thursday) -- 3:10 - 4:40pm, solo, hot sunny afternoon but cool in the woods, 70-73F. 7.5 miles one-way from Peter's home. The park has trails more interesting than expected or shown on the map, featuring a rich variety of terrain, from flat wetland to woody slopes. Well-maintained trails, more than a dozen numbered footbridges, most with murmuring streams flowing below. Two trailheads with better parking on the western higher side (Sahalee Way). Clear maps at all numbered crossroads and forks. I enjoyed quietness and solitude in this small park, as there are no supercilious runners, and just several couples of various ages. It's indeed an "enchanting" walk.
Really enchanting walk... We kept on making right turns at each trail marker to extend our loop because all of us (kids age: 7 and 10) wanted more. Amazing moss covered trees, gorgeous canopies, quaint streams. Our favorite part was all the new tree growth that clearly started on top of friken enormous old stumps. Can't wait to go back and do an even longer trek.
Great suburban nature walk.
Amazing nature walk, for adults and kids. Great place to teach kids plant identification and reading a map. Very peaceful, close-in setting to enjoy nature.
Cute trail. Bring your toddlers.
For a short afternoon jaunt just to get outside, this is nice. The moss on the huge old maples is thick and lush. The trails are well-maintained, with tiny little footbridges scattered throughout. There are at least three solid wooden platforms which are perfect for setting up your tripod; they'll make the bird-watchers very happy. We were there in January and there wasn't a lot of birding activity, but it was a cold day and I'm sure there would be more in different seasons.
I really enjoyed walking along the trails as each trail leads to a new loop but can also connect with the main trail to get you back to the parking lot. The best part about this hike is finding the hidden gnome that is found somewhere along the trail (picture included). There is some mud and water mix with clay which can make the trail slippery in some areas toward the end but just watch your footing and you'll be fine.
There are several bridges along the way and the main bridge across the wet land is really fun to cross. The views are beautiful filled with forests and little creeks while crossing bridges.
This is a very easy hike for everyone including children and dogs as many were seen on the trail. I would repeat this trail again just to have a wonderful walk in the beautiful weather.
