The East Lake Sammamish Trail follows a historic railroad route along the eastern shore of Lake Sammamish within the cities of Redmond, Sammamish and Issaquah. Part of the "locks to lakes corridor," the trail is 11 miles long and follows a path through lakeside communities. The existing "interim" soft-surface trail provides excellent views of the lake and Cascade foothills, and is popular with off-road bicyclists, joggers, walkers, and other users.

The ELST will be upgraded in phases to become a fully paved trail with soft-surface shoulders. The ELST intersects the Issaquah-Preston Trail in Issaquah near I-90, which provides a connection east to the Mountains to Sound Greenway.
