Foothills Trail and Soos Creek Trail
King County Parks
Renton and Enumclaw, WA
New regional trails and trail expansions in South King County will be built with special care while avoiding and restoring sensitive wetlands. Watershed biologists, project managers, and permitting staff have assisted King County with trail projects in Renton and Enumclaw. Staff provided sensitive areas analysis for development of three miles of Soos Creek trail and a one-mile extension of Foothills Trail near Enumclaw. Work included wetland delineation, stream OHWM flagging, wetland/stream buffer analysis, and wildlife habitat assessment. Existing informal trails for both projects will be improved and expanded to make connections to new trails. Additional work on Foothills Trail included preparation of a mitigation plan for permitting and WSDOT standard specifications and construction plans for contractor bidding.
