The new 1.5-mile Marymoor Connector Trail runs through King County's Marymoor Park at the north end of Lake Sammamish, creating a safe and convenient link for cyclists, joggers, walkers and other trail users to long stretches of King County's most popular regional trails.
"Trails play an important role in helping people get exercise by providing a safe and welcoming environment to recreate, run errands and commute," said King County Councilmember Jane Hague, who participated in the grand opening celebration of the connector trail's completion on May 14, 2009.
The new trail joins the Burke-Gilman and Sammamish River Trails on the west side of Marymoor Park with the East Lake Sammamish Trail on the east side, effectively joining Seattle, Bothell, Woodinville, Redmond, Sammamish and Issaquah by trail within the Mountains to Sound Greenway regional trail system.
"With the Marymoor Connector Trail in place, it's now possible to walk or ride from the shores of Puget Sound to the Cascade Foothills along a safe, dedicated trail," said King County Parks Director and Greenway Trust Board Member Kevin Brown.
The connector trail was built in part with funds generated by the voter-approved 2007 King County Parks Expansion Levy. "The trail provides safe transportation through the park during busy times such as summer concerts," says King County Parks spokesperson Jessie Israel. "And we have 20 bicycles available to loan to park visitors to ride on this trail." A new map of the park was funded by Friends of Marymoor Park and is available by contacting.
