Hiking Cavanaugh Pond Natural Area

Cavanaugh Pond Natural Area is on the banks of the Cedar River near the city of Renton. A short, 0.4-mile trail extends from the parking area to a beach along the river. Visitors will parallel the riverbank atop a levy that sits between the pond that this park is named for and the Cedar River.

The Cedar River is not only the source of Seattle’s drinking water but also hosts migrating Sockeye, Chinook and Coho salmon.
