What we're about

Feet First is a local nonprofit working to ensure all communities in Washington are walkable. We organize many fun walking events throughout the year---come walk with us!

Most of the walks are led by trained Feet First's Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors. Our Feet First Walks are for everyone who wants to discover new walking paths, experience other places on foot, and meet friends. Walking together is a healthy, sustainable, and fun form of transportation providing a better understanding of our surroundings and how to improve them and the opportunity to share knowledge. You'll see a whole lot more at 3mph compared to 30mph!

Whether you walk your child to school, walk to the senior center, or walk to your bus, or just enjoy walking in your neighborhood, we work to ensure everyone has a safe way to go by foot.

With your support, Feet First is working hard to make that happen.

Let’s meet up to walk the Heron Loop Trail from Hogan Park in Kent

Hogan Park at Russell Road

Please arrive ready to walk no later than 10 am.

This is a 4.5 mile guided walk. From Hogan Park in Kent we will walk south down the Green River Trail alongside River Bend Golf Course to the Meeker St. pedestrian bridge. After crossing the Green River we turn north and follow Frager Road. Part of way we will share the road with motor vehicles of which there will be few, but we will keep to the left. Then the road is restricted to walkers and cyclists. We cross over the Green River again on the footbridge shown in the photo and turn back south following the Green River Trail back to Hogan Park.

Along the way we will see the work on progress to strengthen and raise the river levees, improve the salmon habitat and to relocate Van Doren's Landing Park. We will also pass by and make a short detour to visit the Heritage Garden at the Neely Soames Homestead. Built in 1885, the Neely House is the oldest surviving building in Kent.

MEETING PLACE:
Meet near the restrooms at Hogan Park at Russell Rd. 24400 Russell Rd. Kent, WA 98032 opposite the second entrance to the park.

ACCESSIBILITY:
The Trail is flat and paved, so suitable for wheelchairs or strollers with small wheels.
