This trail loops around the edge of the Lake Youngs Reservoir just east of the city of Kent. The reservoir is fenced off, but the trail winds through a mix of suburban and rural landscapes, rolling through hilly terrain.
The entire way is soft-surface and makes for a great loop for walkers, joggers and horseback riders. One portion of the trail passes along the fence that protects the reservoir and the other parallels a city street. Most of the way is relatively flat, with the exception of one short, steep section. The width of the trail fluctuates between a single lane gravel road and a narrow footpath.
Lake Youngs is near many other hiking opportunities such as the Spring Lake/Lake Desire network. A short connection on city streets also links up to the Soos Creek Trail (head west on SE 216th Street to get there).
