Enjoy a family hike at one of the new trail systems near Maple Valley and Covington. This new park is located between the two communities.  Approximately 120 acres, this natural area is a mature forest of eighty to one hundred year-old cedars, giant Maple, Douglas fir, and Western Hemlock.

Springs and seeps flow down slope to a lower section of park where two branches of Jenkins Creek and an open water pond await visitors. An old homestead houses more than 300 species of Rhododendrons and Azalias beneath a slope of near old-growth cedar. 

Friends of Cedar Creek Park started developing sustainable trails here in 2013. Future plans for the park is a soft surface trail connecting the two cities through the park, formal trail heads and access from both communities, and additional nature trails throughout the connected forest and natural areas.  Find out more about the park here.
