Hike Report: Soos Creek Trail from Gary Grant Soos Creek Park
13660 SE 208th St, Kent
Soos Creek Trail in Kent is a 6-mile paved trail which winds through wetlands, forest, plains and over Soos Creek. There are four different trail heads to access this popular path, on this hike we started at the Soos Creek Gary Grant Park trail head and walked two miles. I like this entrance because it has a bigger parking lot than other trail heads, a bathroom and a children’s playground. This is a multi use trail, so it is great for walkers, strollers, scooters or bikes. Dogs are welcome, too!
Cross an elevated boardwalk over the wetlands and you will soon come to a crosswalk. Cross the street, and then turn left and continue along the street until you reach the next trail entrance on your right.
Once you get going in this area, there are some rolling hills to give you a leg workout.
At the next fork in the path, take a right. This will lead you over another boardwalk. For a 2 mile out-and-back walk, continue to the next boardwalk and then make a U turn.
Once you are done, the kids can play while the parents relax on the benches near the play area. There is a small area for ages 2-5 and a larger structure for ages 5-12 year old’s.
