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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

i found this a good way to get my kids started on doing the trails. And they really enjoyed it!

Not a huge challenge, but so much fun and scenic.

Beautiful trail to run. 2nd time racing this course. Would love to run it easy with a camera. Almost a crime to not stop and enjoy the scenery

Great dirt trail system between the Watershed and Redmond Ridge; encompassing over 15 miles and 1200 acres. Keep your ears and eyes open for bears in the spring and summer months.

the trail is paved and not natural at all. we didn't care for it

It's a good trail in the heart of Redmond. Family friendly trail. I have done this couple of times with my 3 and 6 year old.

it was great

Nice hike for all skill levels. Very well maintained trail with several other trails leading off of main trail. Nice restroom facilities at trailhead (South entrance). Mile markers marking the trail. Watch for horse poop, quite a lot on the trail. Small pond with viewing area.
