Details

We will launch at Luke McRedmond Park in downtown Redmond and paddle what is called the Sammamish Slough/River. The slough is a 14 miles small river that goes from Lake Sammamish to Kenmore/Lake Washington.

The Sammamish River is home to several runs of salmon and trout, including chinook, coho, sockeye, kokanee, steelhead, and cutthroat trout. The King County government is currently working on restoring fish habitat along the river. Several species of birds and mammals are plentiful along the river, including waterfowl such as Canada geese, ducks, and the Great Blue Heron. Bald eagles and beavers are also common sights near the river.

We are planning on paddling from Luke McRedmond Park to the Redhook Brewery in Woodinville and come back but if the group has the energy we will paddle longer. Afterward, we will drive back to the Redhook Brewery for food and drinks.
