Many different turns / trail options - but most are currently closed. I will go somewhere else until they reopen because you can’t go more than .5 - 1 mile loop currently.

Great hike, mostly fairly level with a few steep muddy switchbacks but my 4 year old was able to do it with ease. I’d definitely recommend it! Only wish it had a bit more of a viewpoint

Nice trail for a pleasant walk! Mix of simple and hillside track which is fun!

I would recommend this trail for a quick hike with your dog with great views and nicely groomed and marked trails. Took me about 30-40 minutes.

I’m so glad to have stumbled upon this beautiful preserve. It is only ten minutes from my house and has very low traffic. There are plenty of trails perfect for running along with open areas with picnic benches and trees. My man made an impeccable cobbler with all the blackberries we picked from here. The bathrooms are very nice and well maintained.

Great trails, barely any traffic year round, plenty of vistas, wildlife, and wilderness. Trails offer switchbacks or flatish ground hiking.

What a nice hike when you are short on time with little kids. Many different options, all well marked and easy to follow. My kids loved the creeks and bridges. We did have a pretty tough encounter with nettles with a fall though! So be careful!

Great family park for young kids. Trail is nicely kept. There are bathrooms. Otherwise nothing special here; Adults--keep driving.

Nothing is really wrong with it, but you don't see anything interesting either.

A nice walk with a lot of small creeklets and open spaces interspersed in the trees. Great for a short outing. There was a field full of lupines dried out for the fall. I bet it's amazing in the spring.

Okay trail and good for a decent walk and hike. View points aren’t that impressive.

My second review of this trail - simply put, convenient, enough trail routes and turns to do it monthly and keep your experience fresh, and a decent climb if you are parked at the west lot. All in all, can be easy and relaxing 2 mile loop or a mildly strenuous, mazey, 3 mile jaunt. Super pretty too even on a cold January winter day

I love this trail because it feels like a little slice of heaven within a residential area. It's close, convenient and beautiful. It doesn't boast any amazing views and is easy in the sense of the workout; however, very pleasurable to get out in nature and get some movement.

8/12/2017 (Saturday) - Cool, cloudy morning 62-66F, 2 hours, 3 miles, loop on the low flat land, up to rather steep sloppy woodland. Friendly hikers and dogs all the way. Dry trails, but creeks still flow.

Family favorite trail, bring the dog sometimes too. She loves seeing all the other dogs on the trail. Kids love that we can take a little different route every time!

Lovey trail! Scenic, well maintained with ample signage. Leashed animals allowed.

This is such a great trail. There are many points where it branches off so you can make your walk/hike shorter or longer. You can also make it harder by walking from the lower trail to the upper trail and then hike up to the upper parking lot and then come back down. The trail is great for kids and dogs, as well. The scenery is beautiful, it's relatively quiet so you can hear the birds and water, and the trail is well-maintained and well-marked. There can be a couple of muddy spots along the trail but nothing you can't walk around. Also, there's a bathroom which is always a bonus. The only downside is that less than of the people I come across with dogs actually follow the "keep your dog leashed" rule.

Had a nice hike with my 3 and a half yr old.

This is regular walk for my dog and I on our weekly rotation. Quite a lot of interesting vegetation, birds (if you are patient) and brooks/streams bubbling down from the plateau. Start low from the parking area on SR-202 or high at another entrance on Sahalee Way. (The map currently does not show the upper trails, which opened in 2016). Trails are well marked with signs at every juncture indicating what's in each direction (meadow, forest, hill). There is about a 330 ft elevation gain if you walk a loop either parking lot to the other. A lot of different ways to mix up this walk on each visit. Description says "Near Redmond" but park is maintained by and in City of Sammamish.

I have done this trail many times, and there is always something new to see. The fact that it has many branches off of the main loop that go in different directions allows you to go a new way each time. It is an easy trail for beginners like me.

Nice trail, dog friendly, bathroom facilities, several side trails to venture on, streams, quaint little bridges to cross. Wish it was longer then 1.9 miles well maintained and trail markers/post along the way

It's short and some areas are not covered. Family friendly if kids can walk. There is hardly any elevation.
