Escape the pressures of urban living in our forest oasis!
Friends of Cedar Creek Park is a group of local community members dedicated to the stewardship and conservation of 119 acres of forested lands between Covington and Maple Valley. They are also working to develop passive recreation opportunities in the park.
Help us make this an amazing park for the local and regional community. We are a volunteer organization that relies on your donations and grants to fund trail building, outdoor education and recreation outings, and future plans for an even better park experience.
Passionate about conservation, restoration, or trails? Get involved. We have volunteers who like to build trails, do trail maintenance, lead hikes, make maps. Join us and be part of what makes our community connected!

New Trail at Cedar Creek Park
Last winter the trail gnomes from King County Parks worked with local volunteers to create a new outer loop connection from the Cedar Creek trail to the the Maple Valley / Covington Connector trail.
This outer loop replaces the old social trail that led out to the gas pipeline right of way. Now the new trail is within the current park boundary and won't be affected by the upcoming development of the gravel pit.
Be sure to check it out. The easiest way to find it is to hike out from the Wild Cedars trail. Take a left at the T and then take a right at the Y towards the northwestern end (way past the new log bridge over the creek) of the Cedar Creek trail. Then follow that trail to the bottom where you can go either left or right to connect with the Connector trail.
