SAMMAMISH RIVER

The Sammamish River Trail runs 10.9 miles along the Sammamish River from Bothell to Marymoor Park in Redmond as part of the “Locks to Lakes Corridor.” The SRT is paved its entire length and is one of King County’s most popular regional trails. The trail offers extraordinary views of the river, the broad Sammamish River Valley, Cascade foothills and Mt. Rainier. Bicyclists, joggers, skaters, walkers, and others enjoy the trail as a regional recreation resource. The SRT is also used extensively by commuters as a nonmotorized corridor between suburban cities and Seattle. A separate soft-surface path runs parallel to the trail between Woodinville and Marymoor Park and provides access for equestrians. Starting at its intersection with the Burke-Gilman Trail near Blyth Park in the City of Bothell, the SRT continues east and south through Woodinville and Redmond, passing Bothell Landing, Sammamish River Park, Wilmot Gateway Park in Woodinville, Northshore Athletic Fields, Woodinville’s wineries and breweries, Sixty Acres Park, and Redmond City Hall and parks before entering King County’s Marymoor Park. A trail extension connects the trail with the East Lake Sammamish Trail via Marymoor Park. The trail also provides access to the Power Line and the Bear Creek Trails in Redmond.
