Sammamish River Trail, King County

Connecting the communities of the Sammamish Valley , including Redmond , Woodinville, Bothell and Kenmore, the 16-mile Sammamish River Trail formed a major link in King County ’s trail system and was the impetus for the formation of a greenway beside the river.

The project included design of a multi-purpose trail with a soft surface shoulder for equestrian use alongside a paved way for bicyclists and pedestrians. The plan also created fishing access, parking, entrance identification, planting buffers and enhanced wildlife habitat. The trail helped to re-oriented nearby communities back towards the river.

With the goal of encouraging wildlife proliferation and improving flood control, JGM participated on subsequent hydraulic studies outlining measures to restore the ‘engineered’ channel to a more naturalistic waterway.

JGM’s scope included pre-design studies, schematic master planning and construction documents. David McNeal, FASLA, was the project landscape architect.
