Where to Meet and Parking Information
From I-90, take Exit 15. Follow signs for Lake Sammamish State Park, and go north on 17th Ave NW. Turn left onto NW Sammamish Rd. The main entrance to Lake Sammamish State Park will be on your right in about one half mile. Enter the park and take your first left into the large parking lot. **You will then want to walk out of the parking lot back towards the entrance, then take a left into the maintenance area. Walk straight towards the sheds and the ranger's house. The nursery is located next to the Maintenance Barn and Rangers’ Houses—look for Greenway event leaders and signs.

The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust field base is located within Lake Sammamish State Park. It is used to store equipment and tools for projects throughout the Greenway, along with being the home base for different staff, crews and teams to meet and work from.

Essential to the operation of the trails program at the Greenway Trust is proper maintenance of our tools and gear. Volunteers can help immensely by cleaning tools and organizing the field base with us before the spring time rush hits. In doing so, you'll be one of the few volunteers with a behind-the-scenes understanding of our field base and how we prepare for trail work events! We hope you can join to help us prepare for our upcoming restoration and trail crew season.
