WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We're just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website, app and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit that runs on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this site this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone. Thank you and happy hiking!

Please take 2 minS to chip in $9

Hiking Soos Creek Trail

The Soos Creek Trail is part of the King County Trail System in Kent. The 7 mile paved trail travels through wetlands and farmland, and offers connectors to the Lake Youngs Trail, a 9 mile, slightly more rugged, unpaved trail.

A multi-use trail, expect to see bikers and horsemen as well as fellow hikers. This is a great option for a close-in hike, or a way to get outside for an evening walk.
