Day Hike - Green River Trail

Trip

Day Hike - Green River Trail

From the Three Friends Fishing Hole Park in Kent we will hike south on the Green River Trail, cross the river at S.212th St and continue down Frager Rd. that follows the west bank. Our furthest point south will be the Old Fishing Hole. We will then turn round and follow the east bank of the Green River back to the trailhead. All the route will be flat and paved. There are interesting features and some good views along the way.
