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.

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.

to much traffic..other than that not bad

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

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.

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.

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 .

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.

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 walk. East, flat and well maintained.

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

Great relaxing bike trail!

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.

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.

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.
