When the Burke-Gilman Trail and the Sammamish River Trail were linked on National Trails Day— June 5, 1993—the result was a 27-mile recreation parkway running from the heart of Seattle to suburban Redmond. On sunny days, walkers, joggers, sloggers, skaters, and cyclists share the paths with young couples walking dogs or pushing strollers. Hot-air balloons often drift overhead. This walk covers a 3.5-mile section of the Sammamish River Trail, between Bothell Landing Park and the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery; it returns over the same route. Special attractions: Picturesque stream, parks, Chateau Ste. Michelle and Columbia wineries, and Redhook Brewery.

As an avid distance runner, I havent found ANY place in the entire Seattle area as a better place for doing "long runs". On MANY occasions, I have parked at Marymoor Park and began my run along the trail. Since the trail runs all the way to Gasworks Park in Seattle (27 miles one way), you can run, bike, or rollerblade all day long! There are several restrooms and drinking fountains along the way to aid in your workout (or leisurely stroll). You can even see some farm animals in the stretch between Sixty Acres Park and Bothell! :)
