Fun biking trail! In good condition, pretty level and great shade. Goes from pavement to dirt back to pavement every couple miles. Occasional views of the lake, and nice house hunting on the trail!

This is a great trail to run- completely flat & beautiful scenery & houses the whole way. I met a friend and we parked one car on one end and carpooled to the other end so we could do the whole thing. Really nice run! There are also a few side trails like one that goes into Marymoor park in case you need extra mileage

Trail is mostly cement with about 3 miles or so of gravel. Gravel on the side of the trail too. Great view of the lake from the trail.

Mostly gravel trail. Construction has closed part of the trail at Louis Thompson road. But you can take the road for that little stretch.

It is under construction and closed. However for A good burn the Issaquah Preston trail has a long difficult hill.

Walking

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.

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.
