Not a lot of cover - best not to go on a hot day. Otherwise smooth and straightforward.

I go rollerblading here habitually, it's such a beautiful trail and when you are going from redmond to woodinville it's extra scenic... at places you feel in the middle of nowhere. the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the cyclists, many go far too fast regardless of the high traffic area signs. I average around 9-11 mph in my skates, the speed limit is 15 for the trail and some bikers seem to be going 3x that, and many fail to notify when they are passing, which has caused several close calls, even when I'm just walking.

paved, smooth, well maintained. but it is popular and can get crowded when the weather is nice.

Generally well maintained. We measured more than 7 mi all on.hard surface , mostly asphalt. The views are generally pleasant to beautiful. The trains name might have changed when we entered Redmoumd

Nice and relaxing this morning. Really easy, Sunday morning walk. Can be as long or as short as you'd like. Only annoying thing is the cyclists. Some are more respectful than others.

Great trail! I usually connect with this trail from Burke-Gilman in Bothell then ride it to Whole Foods, grab a snack and head back.

The only issue with this trail is some riders do not warn when passing, be careful! This trail can move fast.

Great scenery, close to local food if you like and plenty of places to break if needed.

Busy, but easily accessible trail in Redmond. This trail links to the East Sammamish trail at the south end and to the Burke Gilman trail in Kenmore, making it useful for bike commuters.

peaceful trail to ride it was a bit congested in spots. lots of great scenery of the area some call wine country.

Great for roller blading. Benches and bathrooms along the trail as well. Follows the river the entire way, so sometimes you may run into bugs. Also, multiple parking areas so you can start any where along the trail.

Super easy trail, whether you're biking, walking, running... Great for kids! We typically did the portion between Kenmore and Woodinville, as that's all my then 8yo could muster, but we always had fun. Well maintained and eventually we'd like to try and get from Woodinville to the "end" of the trail down at Marymoor!

Rollerblading is great here-even if you have a stroller or are a beginner!

great trail for training or just having fun. for a much longer ride, one can connect with the Burke Gilman Trail.

Great bike ride with nice views of river, greenery, bridges. Wide trail. End up at Red Hook Brewery for a nice cold beer! You deserve it!

Great flat ride along the river! Great for coasting and enjoying the scenery.

Too many bikes at too much speed in this trail. If you are just a pedestrian choose another trail if you don't want to be rolled over by a bike.

Lake Sammamish along the Sammamish River to Lake Washington. Begin by Marymoor Park and end at either Log Boom Park or St Edward State Park. Nice route.
