Klahanie Park – Yellow Lake Loop Trail
The Klahanie development did well protecting Yellow Lake. Put a raft out on the lake and you would have no clue you weren't in the wilderness, instead being surrounded by thousands of homes. The Lake Loop Trail is 1.25 miles circling the lake and ponds. The well graveled trail is nice and wide, flat and easy to walk year round. A small dock also gets you out into Yellow Lake to get a better look. Surprisingly, a few sections are through some original growth, trees that were skipped over by the early loggers. Side trails branch off in many places to the different Klahanie neighborhoods.
Looking at the maps below, you can start in several locations. We started from the Info Center, walked to the playground and started the loop there. From I-90, take the Issaquah exit #17 for Front Street. At the bottom of the ramp, turn left on Front Street. This becomes E Lake Sammamish Pkwy SE. Soon turn right onto SE Issaquah-Fall City Road. Go up the hill and turn left onto Issaquah-Pine Lake Rd SE. Follow one mile to a right turn onto SE Klahanie Blvd. Go a half mile to a right onto 244th Pl SE. The Info Center will be on the left.
