King County Parks is asking for feedback on how to reduce congestion at local trailheads.

If you ventured out to a trailhead near Seattle this summer, odds are you encountered a parking lot loaded with cars. In hopes of addressing traffic and congestion at some of its most popular trailheads, King County Parks is launching an online survey to find out how trail users get to these recreation areas.

The survey, which will be online until December 3, focuses on how visitors get to select trailheads along the I-90 corridor—including Cougar Mountain, Cougar-Squak Corridor Park, Tiger Mountain and Mount Si.

“We want to learn more about how trail users are getting to the trails and what their experiences have been,” said Kevin Brown, division director of King County Parks. “We are excited to work with King County Metro and the hiking community to explore alternatives for reducing trailhead congestion.”

Share your feedback for a chance to win a backpack

This is a great opportunity for King County to learn about what you have encountered at trailheads in the past but also to consider the growing need for alternative transportation to trailheads.

This is a chance for you to help shape the future of recreation in the Puget Sound. Plus, anyone who completes the survey can enter to win a backpack donated by REI.
