- 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, drainage, tread work and turnpikes.
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.
From Seattle drive east on I-90 and take exit #18 (Sammamish). Follow the exit ramp for about 0.5 miles towards Highlands Drive. After the half mile on the exit ramp you will merge onto Highlands Drive. Follow Highlands Drive for another 1.7 miles and go straight across SE Issaquah Fall City Road. You are now on SE Issaquah Pine Lake Road. Follow this for 1.8 miles to a traffic circle continuing straight to stay on Issaquah-Pine Lake Rd SE and in another 0.4 miles turn right onto 228th Ave SE. Follow 228th Ave SE for 1.3 miles and turn right onto SE 8th. After 1.1 miles SE 8th curves to the left and changes to 244 Ave SE which you will follow another 0.4 miles to a traffic circle. Turn right at the traffic circle onto E Main Drive and follow 1.1 miles to its end at the parking lot. (Driving time from Seattle: approximately .50 hours).
