Short and easy. So peaceful to take in the water views and listen to all the nature!

When I first moved to Washington in early 2017, I discovered the Sammamish River Trail located right behind my apartment.

This trail helped me to find my love for running and I was easily able to up my miles from 3 to 20. Since then, I've used it for running, biking and roller blading.

It's a nice long stretch of paved road alongside the river. It does get crowded in certain areas during spring/summer but everyone seems to be pretty respectful of space and staying to the right. During the cooler seasons, it's definitely not as busy and if you're lucky you may just see some Otters like I did :)

The coolest part about this trails that you can go from downtown Redmond to the library to 60 acres park, Woodinville, you pass the Tolt pipeline trail & PSE PowerLine trail, and then into Bothell where it connects you to the Burke Gilman trail... OR you can go to Marymoor Park and connect to the East Lake Sammamish Trail.

Short trail. It's interesting that you can hear the loud sound of frogs by the pond.

Nice little walk in quiet woods not too far away from town. Nothing spectacular but easy and peaceful trail.

Great for kids, but it can take awhile if they like to go off-roading and find things to climb on.

Walked from Puget Power trail point from behind Overlake Christian church. Walked to Redmond Watershed. After coming out of trail at 196th, I continued to PowerLine via 206th Ave NE/NE 112th St. You have to walk on a main road(NE 116th St) to get to 206th Ave.

Not really a trail, just a paved path circling soccer fields. Very busy with bussed in groups of children.

Great well maintained trail. It's great for running or walking with friends as it is wide enough to walk side by side. You can walk as little as 2 miles in a nice loop.

Easy trail with helpful signage and plenty of parking. Very green inside though not much to see.

Pleasant trail, mostly flat. Its going to be cooler than the city so dress accordingly. Has some patches of horse poop! Need to watch out.

I like the trale

Decent nature walk, but the moderate rating is a bit misleading. Trails are almost roads with how wide, flat, and well maintained they are, and only a few extremely short grades of any significance.

This trail surprised me. I was expecting it to be more crowded and city-like, but it feels fairly remote given how close it is to civilization. It's lush, shaded and just the right length for a quick outing.

10/24/2017 (Tuesday) - Walk pleasantly on this paved road for slightly more than one hour in a sunny, mild afternoon. This section of Redmond Connector is recently completed and still brand new.

10/5/2017 (Thursday) - The trail has been extended across the Sammamish River. The new bridge and the new section are pleasant. I moved up from the Sammamish River Trail to taste its fun.

to much traffic..other than that not bad

to much traffic...people are nice though

Beautiful trail on the edge of Redmond.

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

7/27/2017 (Thursday) - One hour walk from Redmond city hall.

Before I say anything about the hike itself let me warn you that if you park at all on the road (asphalt) proper you may be towed. When my daughter and I arrived two tow trucks were towing vehicles that seemed to be posing no hazard, with a sheriff supervising. The hike itself is verdant and lacks difficult inclines but does have some large fallen trees to skirt. It's narrow at times and almost completely covered by trees. Lovely. Beware the popularity of dogs and their owners, which can make your arrival at the falls something less than tranquil (I like dogs but not when they're shaking water onto me and barking up a storm). We hike at a good rate and made it in and out in just over two hours, clocking at about 6 miles.

Marymoor Connector Trail was boring, but the part along the water was absolutely lovely and shaded. Lots of variety from fields to paved bike path to woodsy trails on the edge of the water - great time for my dog. The trail cuts through the dog off-leash area, which is great with a dog, but something to be aware of for anyone who isn't crazy about dogs. Heads up to other dog owners still working on recall - this is not the off-leash area for you! It's completely unfenced and open to the rest of the park. I had to keep my dog on-leash otherwise there was no way I would get him back. If your dog has strong recall, this would be a total treat for them - lots of woods and fields, and a good group of well-behaved large dogs.

Best part of the trail was through the bird section - open fields and shaded woods filled with birds and their associated calls. Great water views and access. Well-used but not crowded.

Somewhat boring, but very well-maintained paved trail. Seemed to be mostly used by cyclists, would also be great for strollers or wheelchairs - very wide and smooth paved trail. Only con was that it's very exposed to the sun. Went with my dog, cyclists were very considerate and we mostly stayed on the gravel right on the side of the trail.

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.

Easy kid-friendly hike. There are plenty of options to make the hike longer or shorter. The scenery is beautiful and lush. Plenty of shade making it a nice choice for hot summer days. It is a trail used by horses, so be ready to dodge mounds of horse poop.

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