Nice wooded area close by 405 in South Kirkland. Popular with nearby neighbors walking the dog, and trail runners. Trails are short, and van get loud on the waste side near the freeway.

Short set of loop trails in a wooded area just west of 405 in Kirkland, near the 520 interchange. Why mention the freeways? That's part of what you'll hear on this trail. 405 is just on the other side of the wall on the eastern section of the loop. On the west side is a steep ravine draining down toward Lake Washington and a creek draining into the wetlands and said lake. It is a nice trail run or walk for locals in the neighborhood and their dogs.

5/3/2016 (Tuesday) - This part is rarely used by serious hikers because of its small size, mainly used by local residents for walking dogs or meditation. Pleasant woody trails and interesting terrain for half to one hour's walk. Its western slope is very steep, but a broad road stretches down to the bottom the ravine, where there is a running creek.

Been visiting this park for years for a quick nature walk. Lots of points of entry. Heading down to the stream at the bottom gives you a nice quick hike back up to the Peace Sign. Fun to explore all the trails.
