Scenic Cedar River Trail Park is located at the mouth of the Cedar River where it flows north into Lake Washington. This 24-acre park contains picnic areas that are close to the water, play equipment, and a non-motorized boat launch. A beautiful spot for viewing birds of all species including Blue Herons and Bald Eagles, it is also a place to witness the annual salmon migration into the Cedar River watershed.
Calling all children and families! Come explore the Cedar River Trail with TRACK Trail brochures: Animal Athletes, Nature's Hide & Seek, Salmon of the Pacific, and The Need for Trees. Brochures can be picked up at the new kiosk located on the trail and provide a self-guided adventure to learn as you hike. Receive prizes when you record your hike with kidsinparks.com. This program is free.
