Walking  Redmond

Redmond offers many opportunities to walk, bike or skate. There are many trails, sidewalks and walking paths to walk whether for fun, exercise or simply to get from place to place within the city or on an urban trail. Visit Redmond’s East walking map (PDF) and West walking map (PDF) offer many choices to encourage you to put one foot in front of another.       

Read our Share the Trail brochure (PDF) filled with best behavior and safe practices when sharing the trail with others.

Redmond’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee helps enhance Redmond’s non-motorized transportation system to better enable people to safely and efficiently move about the community by foot and bicycle. 

Go Redmond provides incentives for people using alternative modes of transportation to get to work. 

The following are safety elements the City has deployed for pedestrian safety:

  1. RRFB (Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon)
  2. Crosswalks
  3. Countdown Signals & Push Buttons
  4. Pedestrian Zone Signs
  5. School Zones

NEW Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB) Crosswalk enhancements were installed in 3 locations throughout 2020.

  • NE 90th St & 161 Ave NE near the Bella Botega Complex
  • NE 104th St & 172nd Ave NE adjacent to Hartman Park, Redmond High School and Horace Mann Elementary
  • 140th Ave NE & NE 74th St on the Rose Hill & Stella Schola Middle Schools walking routes

The installations were paid with funds from the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program. The enhancements were installed in-house as a coordinated effort between Redmond’s Street Maintenance Technicians and Traffic Operation, Safety and Engineering’s Signal Technicians.

Below is a Solar Configured System which saves the City money upfront and in the future.
