If you are looking for a mostly snowfree road or trail walk that is close in this is for you. This area (King Ct. Parks) is east of Issaquah. This was hiked last week and I would think this patchy snow should be mostly gone by this weekend.
|Road walk, with patchy snow at times @ Dennis Long|
|This was our turnaround point at 4.2 miles in with one inch of snow @ Dennis Long|
|There are many side trails one can take @ Dennis Long|
Driving Directions: From I-90 take exit 17 (Front Street), and turn right (south) onto Front Street and continue south through Issaquah. Front Street becomes Issaquah-Hobart Road as you leave town. Continue south along this road to its junction with State Route 18. Cross under SR 18 and drive short distance and turn left into Taylor Mountain Forest, King County Parks. No fees required.
Trail Stats: Since many of the trails were very muddy we decided to do a mellow road walk Road A to Road H and went 8.5 miles and 1200' gain. See track below.
