Soaring Eagle Park by Chris

Soaring Eagle Natural Area is part of the King County Park system. It is the northern end of a regional trail system starting at I-90 and includes Grand Ridge, Duthie Hill and Beaver Lake Preserve. For this work party we will be doing some brushing and tread work.

This is the regular Thursday work party, so we will be meeting at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast at IHOP, in Issaquah at 1433 NW Sammamish Road, Issaquah, WA 98027. Coming from Seattle, take Exit 15 and turn left at the light onto WA-900. Cross over the over-pass and take the left at NW Sammamish Rd. IHOP will be on the left. All volunteers are welcome join us. It is a great opportunity to meet your co-workers. Otherwise you can meet us at the trailhead at the regular time.

Soaring Eagle is a 460 acre parcel above Issaquah that King County Parks has acquired, and will become part of the trail system that connects from I-90 north through Grand Ridge to Duthie Hill Park, north through Soaring Eagle. It contains many neighborhood trails that need repair and possible re-routes.

Driving directions:
From Seattle drive east on I-90 and take exit #18 (Sammamish). You are now on Highlands Drive. Stay on Highlands. At 2.6 miles from exit #18 you will go straight across the SE Issaquah Fall City Road. You are now on SE Issaquah Pine Lake Road and at 5 miles from exit #18 you will intersect 228th. Go right. At 6.3 miles from exit #18 make another right onto SE 8th (this will become 244th SE). At 7.8 miles make another right on East Main, drive to the end of the road at 9 miles. WTA will mark the trailhead. (Driving time from Seattle: approximately .50 hours).
