Evans Creek Trail

Category Overview

Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.

Project Highlights

The Evans Creek Trail project is Phase I of the Bear/Evans Creek Multi-Use Trail. Evans Creek Trail will extend from the Redmond/Fall City Road north to Novelty Hill Road. The trail will connect SE Redmond Neighborhood Park, Johnson Park, Avondale Community Park, Conrad Olson Farm and Farrel McWhirter Park. The trail corridor will consist of two separated trail pathways: a paved 12 foot wide pathway for pedestrians and bicyclists and a parallel soft surface pathway, 3 feet wide, for equestrians. This proposed trail is a vital connecting link in Redmond’s proposed trail system. It will create a looped trail around the city with connections to other regionally important King County and Redmond trails.
