Hiking Illahee Lake Trail

Illahee Lake is tucked into a residential neighborhood in the city of Sammamish. A paved trail circles around the lake, offering a nice slice of nature.

There is street parking along NE 8th Street with immediate access to the trail. The majority of the trail is in a natural setting with wide open views of the lake, but the SW corner of the lake does border streets, and one section of the trail here is on the sidewalk.
