Along its course, the Sammamish River flows through Redmond, Woodinville, Bothell, and Kenmore. Kayakers will enjoy paddling this slow-moving river, and the paved Sammamish River Trail that follows the river for most of its length is popular with both bicyclists and pedestrians.
If whitewater rafting is your thing, then Skykomish River is the place to go. Boasting mostly Class III and Class III+ rapids, it also includes Boulder Drop, a class IV+ rapids. The Skykomish will take you through Gold Bar and Monroe before meeting up with the Snoqualmie River to form the Snohomish River. Steelhead fishing is also popular here - several launch sites provide easy river access.

This 45-mile long river begins near the town of Snoqualmie, where the river's three forks join just above Snoqualmie Falls. It meanders its way north through rich farmland before meeting up with the Skykomish River to form the Snohomish River near Monroe. Fishing is a popular activity here - the combination of steelhead runs in the lower river and trout fishing in the upper forks makes the Snoqualmie a favorite among many Seattle-area anglers.
