Located on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula, Clear Creek Trail is almost 8 miles from Silverdale Waterfront Park on Dyes Inlet north to Trigger Avenue. It follows Clear Creek as it meanders through riparian areas, wetlands, and remnant forests. Hard to believe it's in the middle of a highly developed urban area.

Kitsap Salmon Running
Clear Creek has been seeing the annual migration of Chum and Coho back to their natal stream since the last rainfall.
Bring the family out to enjoy the thrilling spectacle of salmon fighting their way upstream to build redds, lay eggs and fulfill their life's work - to regenerate.
The best place to view the salmon run is at our Ridgetop Pavilion adjacent to 9228 Ridgetop Blvd. in downtown Silverdale across the street from the new Veteran's Clinic.
You could also view - at low tide - salmon swimming upstream at the Bucklin Hill Bridge.
Don't forget your polarized sunglasses!
Our Interpretive Center is located in the red barn at the eastern edge of the bridge and Clear Creek. The parking lot is reserved for customers of the adjacent businesses.
please park in this lot on weekends and after business hours only. Weekdays, park at Old Mill Park across Bucklin Hill Road. There is a crosswalk on the eastern side of the bridge to the Clear Creek Trailhead and Interpretive Center.
