Overview

Features: River/Creek — Views

Description

There is a ferry and cafe with STUNNING views just 4 blocks away. Parking is located in the dog park. Highly suggest Red Cup Cafe afterwards.

This trail is very obvious. From the dog park, head towards a road barrier, and keep descending about 100 ft downhill and then keep your eyes out for a trail on the right. The trail will continue to descend gently, and there will be a train track on your left and a roaring creek on your right for the first steep uphill. After that, the trail is more rolling.

At the top, you'll be at the back of Boeing.This portion of the trail will come to an end, but that doesn't mean that your outing has to.

If you're looking to continue your journey past the main trail, take a hard left onto wide dirt road. At end of the road turn right, go 20 feet through trees and come out near a pond. Keep the pond tight on your left and you'll enter the forest and be greeted by about a zillion trails. They are all very ruggedly rolling, and provide many options.

Flora & Fauna

Year round creek is VERY full through April. 50% heavy tree cover; intermittent small creeks.
