Redmond Watershed Park and Preserve






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.


Unfortunately dogs are not allowed at this park


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: 5.6 miles.

Configuration:  Loop

Access: No pass required for parking or park access.

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

      Hi Manjula, unfortunately there are so many trails and it would be hard for you to find us. I'll be doing these hikes once a week so hopefully you will have an opportunity to join us next time.
