TRIP DETAILS:

From Hogan Park on Russell Road in Kent we will hike south along the Green River Trail beside Riverbend golf course to the Meeker Street Bridge. Here we will cross the river and visit the Old Fishing Hole with its Salmon and Cedar totem pole. Then we will head north on Frager Rd. following the west riverbank to S. S.212th St where we will cross back onto the Green River Trail to arrive at our turnaround point: The Three Friends Fishing Hole. There is a shelter here with benches for our lunch stop and restrooms close by.

On our return leg we will take the Green River Trail south back to Hogan Park. There is a short diversion because of trail closure due to levy and salmon restoration work. On the way we will pass Kent’s oldest surviving homestead from 1885.

All the route will be flat and paved. There are interesting features and some good views along the way. The hike will be led at a fairly causal pace of 2 mph average moving speed.

COVID GUIDELINES:

We will follow the  the Healthy Washington plan and Mountaineers guidelines that apply on the date of the hike.
