Was expecting mud - the trail was surprisingly dry. The trail is about 50% covered by leaves which can make it slippery. Saw a beautiful hooded merganser. Quick easy outing, good to do once, probably won’t come back.

A nice walk with a lot of small creeklets and open spaces interspersed in the trees. Great for a short outing. There was a field full of lupines dried out for the fall. I bet it's amazing in the spring.

Quiet and beautiful trail, best enjoyed in an unhurried way.

Ran a half marathon on this trail this weekend. Beautiful trial with LOTS of rolling hills. Be aware this trail is used by bikers and horses.

Simple and easy. Great for grandkids on about four

Good with Kids. Not that crowded so group of 3-4 will make it fun.

Okay trail and good for a decent walk and hike. View points aren’t that impressive.

Good walk in a sunny day. A bit muddy at the east half of the trail, west half is totally fine.

One of my favorite places to go and relax

My second review of this trail - simply put, convenient, enough trail routes and turns to do it monthly and keep your experience fresh, and a decent climb if you are parked at the west lot. All in all, can be easy and relaxing 2 mile loop or a mildly strenuous, mazey, 3 mile jaunt.

Super pretty too even on a cold January winter day

Awesome to get to on a mountain bike and do the various loops. Pipeline trail cuts through it like Main Street.

Easy, scenic, peaceful and good for kids.

Make sure you have your waterproof hiking boots if taking this trail during the rainy season. Several parts of the trail were covered with large puddles which didn't surprise me given we visited the wetlands on a rainy winter day!

I love this trail because it feels like a little slice of heaven within a residential area. It's close, convenient and beautiful. It doesn't boast any amazing views and is easy in the sense of the workout; however, very pleasurable to get out in nature and get some movement.

The little trail is a surprise in this neighborhood. It's peaceful, and even saw some animals: a deer and a bunny. I brought my dog, but he wasn't welcome on Ann's trail, an offshoot of the main trail.

Very pleasant trail

8/12/2017 (Saturday) - Cool, cloudy morning 62-66F, 2 hours, 3 miles, loop on the low flat land, up to rather steep sloppy woodland. Friendly hikers and dogs all the way. Dry trails, but creeks still flow.

8/12/2017 (Saturday) - A cool, cloudy morning of lower 60s to see the lakeside park, good place for swimming and fishing, and a large playground for kids. The trail loop in the loops is short but beautiful.

Nice hike. Lots of branches off the trail. Used the Alltrails app to track our walk and keep us on the right trail. Small parking lot fills up quickly but there is parking on street. Lots of hikers and bikers. Single file for most of the trail with scattered rocks and roots.

Family favorite trail, bring the dog sometimes too. She loves seeing all the other dogs on the trail. Kids love that we can take a little different route every time!

Hiked the perimeter of the park with my dog, just over 5 miles. Trails seemed to be primarily used for mountain biking, pretty moderate use. Well marked trail with maps at every intersection. Other hikers, trail runners, and cyclists were all very courteous. Fair amount of horse poop on the trail, which my dog rolled in. Lots of foraging potential - many types of berries, nettle, devil's club, etc. etc. Very easy and pleasant hiking. I ran into a cyclist who seemed to be a regular on the trail, he warned me that someone had recently seen a bear on the trail. I carried bear spray and didn't see any scat or other signs of bears, but immense quantities of berries would certainly be a draw.

Lovey trail! Scenic, well maintained with ample signage. Leashed animals allowed.

Awesome for a short walk. Very well maintained

This is such a great trail. There are many points where it branches off so you can make your walk/hike shorter or longer. You can also make it harder by walking from the lower trail to the upper trail and then hike up to the upper parking lot and then come back down. The trail is great for kids and dogs, as well. The scenery is beautiful, it's relatively quiet so you can hear the birds and water, and the trail is well-maintained and well-marked. There can be a couple of muddy spots along the trail but nothing you can't walk around. Also, there's a bathroom which is always a bonus. The only downside is that less than of the people I come across with dogs actually follow the "keep your dog leashed" rule.

Had a nice hike with my 3 and a half yr old.

This is regular walk for my dog and I on our weekly rotation. Quite a lot of interesting vegetation, birds (if you are patient) and brooks/streams bubbling down from the plateau. Start low from the parking area on SR-202 or high at another entrance on Sahalee Way. (The map currently does not show the upper trails, which opened in 2016). Trails are well marked with signs at every juncture indicating what's in each direction (meadow, forest, hill). There is about a 330 ft elevation gain if you walk a loop either parking lot to the other. A lot of different ways to mix up this walk on each visit. Description says "Near Redmond" but park is maintained by and in City of Sammamish.

I have done this trail many times, and there is always something new to see. The fact that it has many branches off of the main loop that go in different directions allows you to go a new way each time. It is an easy trail for beginners like me.

Very fun first hike. trail was good - a couple places were pretty muddy.
