Featured Activity: Let's talk about the CKC! Cross Kirkland Corridor
The Cross Kirkland Corridor (CKC) Interim Trail is now Open! The latest outdoor recreation sensation on the Eastside is a compacted crushed gravel 5.75 mile segment of the Eastside Rail Corridor that traverses Kirkland, from the South Kirkland Park & Ride to the northern boundary of the City in the Totem Lake Business District. The trail is a perfect place for a morning stroll, afternoon run, weekend bike ride or nature walk.

 

 
Dive into the Kirkland Tourism Video
Kirkland Tourism Video Take 12 hours, add a dozen distinctive locations, mix in a stunning lakeside location with mountain views, and you have the Kirkland tourism video. The video not only captures the very best of Kirkland, but also includes the appearance of 14 local residents who generously volunteered their time to tell the story of a day well-spent in Kirkland.
