Soos Creek Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Soos Creek Trail travels through heavily wooded forest on a north-south route spanning the eastern edge of the Seattle suburb of Kent. Following the path of its namesake creek, the trail begins just a short distance from scenic Lake Meridian in the south and travels northward towards its ultimate terminus at Meeker Middle School.

The trail is paved over its entire length, and an adjacent soft surface path for equestrian use parallels the trail at times. Near the trail's midpoint at SE 216th Street, bikers, walkers and runners can continue west to the 9-mile Lake Youngs Trail, which encircles the large lake with an unpaved path.

Plans are in motion to extend the Soos Creek Trail north for an additional 4 miles to ultimately connect to the existing Cedar Creek Trail in Renton.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Soos Creek Trail can be found at its northern trailhead at the intersection of SE 192nd Street and 124th Avenue SE and at the southern trailhead at 148th Avenue SE and SE 266th Street. Additional parking is available at 148th Avenue SE and SE 249th Street and at SE 208th Street just east of 136th Avenue SE.

While in the parking lot at the entrance by Lake Meridian, myself and my husband prepared our bikes for the ride. My 3 kids, 8, 4 and 4 were 10 feet away just outside the barrier of the lot. It took 10 seconds for my 4 year old son to find 2 hypodermic more

I have recently returned to biking, so this was a great trail to ride. Not too long, had some hills that were not crazy steep, shady and sunny patches a well balanced trail overall. There are several road crossing, but all were clearly marked. Some even more
