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.
Safety First on the Trail
Leaves are beginning to fall and cover the boardwalks. We are attempting to keep them cleared but it is a daily task. Also, when boardwalks are wet, they're extremely slippery.
Because many of our Adopt a Trail volunteers are older or in the military where they are mission essential, the trail in some places is less than our standard 6' wide.
A few tips for all Clear Creek Trail users:
Please wear a mask or have it at the ready and leash your dog.
We need your help keeping the trail in good shape. Please, if you pack it in, pack it out.
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 others not in your household.
Salmon return to their natal creek
The most oft asked question of WSU Stream Stewards is "When will the Salmon return?"
The answer has plenty to do with when then rains come and fill up the streams.
Join the Clear Creek Task Force at the Ridgetop Pavilion observation deck to cheer on the salmon as they make their way from Dyes Inlet all the way to the north valley past the beaver dams to the headwaters.
Branches, leaves and trash will be the focus of this work party.
Join the Clear Creek Task Force at the Ridgetop Pavilion (adjacent to 9228 Ridgetop Blvd) to clear boardwalk of debris for a safer, more pleasant walk along the Clear Creek Trail.
