A trip to Ring Hill Forest gives visitors an opportunity to observe a working forest in action as King County implements its Forest Stewardship Plan which is focused on creating a diverse, vigorous, and healthy forest that provides habitat as well as revenue.

Ring Hill Forest is a King County working resource land. These lands play an important role in sustaining agriculture and forestry activities by creating contiguous tracts of working forest and agriculture lands, educating the public about working landscapes, and providing passive use recreational opportunities.

Ring Hill Forest is 320 acres of rural forestland located on the west wall above the Snoqualmie Valley above the Snoqualmie River. The forest slopes from the plateau in the west steeply to the Snoqualmie Valley floor to the east.

Ring Hill was acquired to conserve rural forestlands, provide a buffer between rural residential development and agricultural uses in the Snoqualmie Valley, and provide revenue while demonstrating sustainable forestry
