I love this trail for some good exercise, head clearing, and nature watching. Close to my house. You can park at the ball park if you don't want to pay to park at Kleinline Pond, which can be super packed during the summer, anyway. You can also park on 119th at the trailhead for Cougar Creek Trail (not to be confused with Cougar Creek trails at WSU-V!), which is more wooded and is a gravel path that goes 1/2 mile and connects about mid-way on Salmon Creek Trail.

Easy walk, not so much a hike. Distance and scenery makes it worth it.

Great easy paced walk! I won't say hike but it was fun and a fair amount of available distance. We did 1/2 in and back next time think we will park a car at each end as I would have loved to see the rest of it. The weather was great so it was a little busy. Bikes and people with dogs. I'm pretty sure I saw a sign referencing horses but we didn't see any. Nice options to walk dirt paths rather than paved which I prefer.

And to coin what other have said, park at the softball field to avoid the parking fee at Klineline pond. (Going west it's the next right after the pond entrance.)

Great paved trail, there are some alternate routes that allow you to leave the paved trails. Great services, all along the trail.

The trail itself is fairly good, but if you want to find the better views, there is some form of off-trail exploration required. Can get somewhat busy at times, but a better alternative if you don't want to be stuck in a gym.

A nice paved trail to walk, jog, or bike on. Just over 6miles, so it gives you enough time to enjoy the scenery. The path is both in sun and shade.

Nice little paved trail. Gets pretty busy. Great option for running if you don't like vehicular traffic.
