Many gathered at the East Lake Sammamish Trailhead June 12 for King County’s official opening of the newly paved path.
Unveiling the 2.2-mile stretch that runs from Gilman Boulevard to Southeast 43rd Street, county parks director Kevin Brown welcomed the early afternoon crowd.
“Our trails are essential components for our communities,” he said, praising the work that went into 12-foot-wide trail with gravel shoulders. “This makes the trail safer and more accessible for all.”
