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

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.

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.

The dog and I love this trail, espically always for a pit stop at the dog park :)

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 biked along the trail - its mostly gravel and has some steep hills. Best part is Minimal traffic throughout the trail. Great workout because of the slopes .

Beautiful view of Rainier! Easy ride to connect over to east Lake Sammamish bike path, which will give you better view of lake. Well maintained.

5/17/2016 (Tuesday) - This trail is well maintained, but lightly used. It features gentle ups and downs, and distant views at some points. Good for a half-day walk.

Great park! Especially for dogs. We come here everyday.

This park pretty much has it all. Dog friendly, lots of space, beautiful views and easily accessible. Great place to go to get outside if you don't have time for a hike or if you just want to picnic and relax.

Paved trail near the Redmond town center mall and following Bear Creek. The city of Redmond is refurbishing the grounds adjacent to the trail and along the creek, which should make for some nice open space. One downside is that this is close to Bear Creek parkway and SR520. Trail was popular with runners and cyclists when I went.

The scenery is stunning. There are many types of birds to watch. My husband and I saw a few bald eagles by the lake and, when we were there in mid-May, blue herons were nesting in the trees. The dog park is huge! Parking is $1.

Not a trail but our favorite place to let our pup run free. This is an unbelievably gorgeous dog park complete with multiple fields, at least three river access points for dogs that love playing in the water and an on-leash bird watching trail. You can walk a ring around the whole dog park once or twice and feel like you did something. Totally flat so anyone can do it. It costs 1$ for the day to park. Take a picnic!

Good trail but the descent down to the Sammamish River Trail can be tough especially for new riders.

It's not really a trail. But it is the best dog park in or around Seattle. Always busy and lots for friendly dogs, with several different kinds of settings in one dog park. Great little areas for the dogs to swim too. Great dog park.
