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.



Leaves are falling!

With the recent wind and rain, the falling leaves make our boardwalks very slick.


The Clear Creek Task Force is raking leaves an small branches as fast as they're falling! But we could sure use your help.


We invite you to bring a rake or a broom on your outing to keep our boardwalks less slippery. Just rake them off the boardwalk but be sure not to throw any trash into the brush. Thank you!


We have rakes, brooms, gloves and bags if needed but your welcome to bring your own.

Fall Planting Party

The area alongside a stream or river is referred to as a riparian zone. These zones are buffers since they help filter pollutants out of water flowing across impervious surfaces into the creek.

One of the most important functions of riparian vegetation is its ability to control erosion and prevent sediment pollution in the stream.


Trees also provide shade to cool the water, fallen trees and branches provide pools and refuge for juvenile fish and bugs, all necessary for salmon to thrive.

The Clear Creek Task Force invites you to celebrate Veterans’ Day on the Clear Creek Trail. We’ll start at the Ridgetop Pavilion, 9228 Ridgetop Blvd at 10:00a.


We’re planting natives in the riparian area along the trail and pulling ivy. This is rain or shine event so dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes and bring your garden gloves and a shovel.
