This is a traverse hike from Issaquah to Redmond along Lake Sammamish. It's 12 miles, all flat, all trail, all along the lake.
We will begin by meeting in downtown Seattle and riding the 554 to Issaquah Transit Center, where the hike begins. We we will head north across I-90 across a wonderful new pedestrian overpass, cut through Lake Sammamish State Park, and pick up the East Lake Sammamish Trail on the other side of the park. We will stay on the trail all the way to Redmond. We will return home on bus #545. If there is interest, a post-hike meal in downtown Redmond can certainly be arranged.
Board bus #554 (2nd and Pine) - 9:30 AM
Arrive Issaquah Transit Center - 10:00 AM
Arrive Redmond - 3:00 PM (tentative)
Arrive Seattle - 4:00 PM (tentative)
Feel free to join us at whichever stop along the 554 suits you best. If you live on the Eastside and want to drive to a place to meet us, the post-hike-return-to-car logistics works best if you meet us at Eastgate P&R (join us as the #554 goes by Eastgate Freeway Station approx. 9:45).
