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, wear a mask, leash your dog, 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 since 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, graffiti and other situations that needs special attention to keep the trail a safe and peaceful place.

Discovery Play Days
Discovery Play Days offers hands-on activities and outdoor education for young children (3 to 10 years-old) and their parents or guardians.
With gatherings restricted, Discovery Play Days is moving to the germ free web for our storytelling and crafts. Soon our I Spy guidebook can be downloaded to use to explore wetlands, shorelines, and wildlife in your back yard or hiking around the Clear Creek Trail.
Join Miss Aleah from the Silverdale Library for storytelling, songs and other eco-friendly activities on-line. The video will be up for two weeks until the next one is posted.
Birds of a feather until July 8
