East Lake Sammamish Trail terminus
at Gilman Boulevard in Issaquah

King County is delighted to announce another milestone toward completing the East Lake Sammamish Master Plan Trail.

Join us as we cut the ribbon and re-open the newly developed trail segment, a 2.2-mile-long section from SE 43rd Way
to Gilman Boulevard.

The trail has gone from a crushed rock surface to a 12-foot-wide paved trail with 2-foot soft-surface shoulders on each side, making it more accessible to bicyclists, skaters and trail visitors of all ages and abilities. We've also improved safety by enhancing intersection and road crossing treatments, among other design improvements. The ELST follows an historic railroad route along the eastern shore of Lake Sammamish and connects the cities of Redmond, Sammamish and Issaquah.

Funding for this project was provided by the 2008-2013, voter-approved Open Space and Trails Levy, the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program, and the Federal Highway Administration.
