North Creek Trail Section 4

News & project updates


February 2018


The project is in its 60% design phase.

About the project


The North Creek Trail Section 4 project is the last missing segment of North Creek Trail within the City of Bothell. It will be built on a separated path from SR 524 between the intersection of SR 524 (Filbert Road)/9th Ave SE and the north terminus of the newly built North Creek Trail Section 3.

When complete, this trail will connect the designed Snohomish County North Creek Regional Trail with the existing North Creek Trail system in Bothell. It is a key missing North Creek Trail segment that will link the Snohomish County Regional Interurban Trail at McCollum Park in Everett with the King County Regional Sammamish River Trail/Burke-Gilman Trail in Bothell. Completion of the North Creek Trail system will improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists as well as encourage non-motorized travel between business centers, transit stops, parks, and employment centers.
