Redmond Watershed Park and Preserve

  • Redmond Watershed Park

    Novelty Hill Rd @ 218th, Redmond, WA (map)

    47.693935 -122.049309

  • I'll be at the far north end of the parking lot at the trailhead. Look for a light blue 2005 Crown Vic

    Originally I had this hike posted for last Sunday but had to cancel because of a marathon and half-marathon race that took place that weekend. Didn't see anything scheduled for the 21st so it will be a go this time.

     

    This is an easy hike in any type of weather, rain or shine.

    Well maintained trails and facilities and yet well protected from encroaching development, the Redmond Watershed Preserve offers a worthwhile natural experience right on the city's doorstep. A wide network of multiple use trails explores the reaches of the preserve, providing good hiking opportunities in a surprisingly scenic environment.

    ( Information provided by "60 Hikes Within 60 miles")

    Unfortunately dogs are not allowed at this park.

     

    There is also the option of stopping somewhere for lunch afterwards

     

    Directions:  In Redmond at the end of 520, continue onto Avondale Road. After just more than one mile, turn right onto Novelty Hill Road. Continue 2.3 miles to the park entrance on the left, across from 218th Ave NE.

    Difficulty: Easy

    Hiking time: 2 hours

    Facilities: Restroom at trailhead, no drinking water available.

    Length: 6 miles

    Configuration: Loop

    Elevation gain: less than 100 feet.

    Access: Free parking, no permit required.

    Pace: slow to moderate.

    Exposure: Mostly shaded

     

     

    I will send an email out to everyone the day before the hike with my cell number in case anyone needs to contact me.

    What time does the group plan on the trek? I cannot get there before 9:30am and that could be a push for me. I do not want to delay the group, so if my arrival would be to late I will catch the next hike.

    Bob, I went over yesterday and the parking lot was closed (I assume that it was because it was full). If they are closed again next weekend there is a nearby place with good parking on Cedar Park Crescent. Turn Right (south) onto Cedar Park Crescent and then take the first right into the Redmond Ridge ROA facility. They have a fair sized parking lot, with a small gravel path that leads out to the street close to the Novelty Hill / Cedar Park Crescent intersection. The pipeline trail head is two hundred feet back down Novelty Hill, or it's just a bit farther to the main parking lot and trail head.

    How long is this hike Bob? I have something scheduled at 12:30, but I could be a little late for that.

    Hi! This will be my first hike with the group. Any suggestions on what to bring and wear? I have hiking shoes and rain jacket, do I need a pack? 2 hours doesn't seem too bad so I don't want to bring too much :-) But, I don't want to be unprepared either.

    Thanks! - Kim

      No Kim, you don't need a pack for this hike. You're all set.
