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.
The Clear Creek Task Force is very pleased and encouraged with the uptick in trail use. Fresh air and exercise will strengthen your body and relieve stress in these uncertain times.
CCTF has adapted our operations to ensure the safety of our volunteers and the public who use the trails. To this end, we need your continued support both monetary and maintenance.
A few tips for all Clear Creek Trail users:
Please, if you bring it in, take it out and dispose of it properly. Do not leave it for volunteers to take care of.
If you do walk, run or bike, please practice social distancing, vigilant handwashing, and cover your cough.
Stay home if you’re under the weather.
Visit our Facebook page to post your photos of the Clear Creek Trail. We want to see you enjoying the fresh air!
Stay safe and healthy, and we’ll see you on the Trail.

Salmon in the Classroom Field Trips
Kitsap County Schools are closed and as a result, Salmon in the Classroom Field Trips have also been cancelled.
The 2,400 salmon fry in the 24 tanks were raised by 936 students in 34 classes in schools both public and private.
With the cancellation of schools and thus the field trips, teachers released the salmon into Clear Creek. Some filmed the released for their disappointed students.
The Salmon in the Classroom Team has posted one such release on our website. Also on the website an educational habitat scavenger hunt for walks in the north valley.
We thank those that volunteered to help out and hope to see you next year.
March thru April
Thanks to those who volunteer to maintain the Clear Creek Trail. But many hands make light work!
Here's what you and your family and friends can do while enjoying a stroll on the trail:
Pick up your dog's poop and put it in the trash cans proved at trailheads or take it home. Do not leave it along the trail to be picked up on your way back. Nobody is sure this will happen. And it is disheartening to see it.
Bring a set of pruning shears along for minor trimming. In the growing season, cut back brush within a foot of the trail. Cut material can be scattered off the trail.
Blackberry and scotch broom control within 15 - 20’ of the trail.
