Soos Creek Trail from Soos Creek Park
Soos Creek Trail is a 6 mile paved path in the Kent/Renton area that winds through wetlands, fields, forest and over Soos Creek. This post highlights the section that begins at Soos Creek Park, located off of Kent Kangley Road east of Lake Meridian Park. For google map directions, click here.
This section of the Soos Creek Trail is really pretty with more forest and creek views than wetland, and perfect for strollers. It is a multi use trail, so you will see lots of dogs and even horses. Although this path is bike friendly, I would recommend only bringing bikes for the kids if they are strong peddlers. Some of the hills are pretty steep and might prove to be a hard ride for little legs.
About .4 miles in you will walk over a pretty bridge, then cross the street to continue.
You might even get to see some horses.This section is really pretty with lots of trees and views of the creek. It also has some rolling hills, one of which is pretty steep.
We saw a few ducks paddling around.
There is another bathroom stop, clearly marked with signs. Hang a left at the roundabout in the path to get to another Port O Potty. After your bathroom break, hit the trail again and continue on until you reach the next trail head. If you make a U turn here, this hike will be about 2 miles in total.
Here’s another report on a different part of Soos Creek Trail–and stay tuned for a post on the last section of this popular spot.
