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 physical distancing by stepping to the side on narrow trails and keeping 6 ft between you and your friends not in your household. Stay home if you’re under the weather.
Stay safe and healthy, and we’ll see you on the Trail.

Volunteers = Trail Maintenance
The Clear Creek Task Force is an all volunteer organization maintaining Clear Creek Trail on both public and private land.
Volunteers mow, trim back brush, pick up trash, paint over graffiti, empty trash cans, fill mutt mitt dispensers and repair trail.
Many of our Adopt-a-Trail groups are from military organizations and have had other important responsibilities during the Stay at Home directive.
We need your help keeping the trail in good shape. Please, if you pack it in, pack it out. And please report damage to the trail, grafitti and other situations that we need to know to keep the trail a safe and peaceful place.

Honoring Tex Lewis
Twenty-eight years ago, Paul Brittain and Tex Lewis, affectionately known as Mr. Think and Mr. Do, founded Silverdale’s Clear Creek Task Force.
Mr. Think’s master plan was to preserve and protect Clear Creek, a salmon bearing stream, with Mr. Do’s help.
The Clear Creek Task Force built the trail in stages as land and donations became available.
In the ensuing years, Tex Lewis led the charge with the help of thousands of community members, building and maintaining the scenic trail you enjoy.
On this day the Kitsap County Commssioners will honor the amazing man with a proclamation at their regular board meeting at the Poulsbo City Council Chambers.
