The part of Salmon Creek Park I'm describing is south of Salmon Creek Rd., east of WSUV's campus, and borders Pleasant Valley Middle School on NE 50th Ave. From the school parking lot that is mostly vacant on Sundays, but really full the other six days, an asphalt trail suitable for strollers meanders on the backsides of homes down to Salmon Creek. A large gazebo with large picnic tables sits on a hill and makes a nice spot for a family picnic although a bit of a trek with dogs, toddlers, and a stroller. It was also a bit breezy the day we went, but probably nicer on a more balmy day. As the trail gets steeper, the asphalt turns to decomposed granite. The trail continues down to the main creek but some narrower, dirt trails parallel the much wider, level trail that fans out into sort of a meadow. Just know that the narrow trails that go through some much slower moving water had some hungry mosquitoes. A warning or two: probably better to walk with someone and not alone. Also someone seems to have a dog walking gig sometimes with eight or so unleashed dogs that seem well-behaved.
