Highest Point: 500 ft.
Soaring Eagle Regional Park features 12 miles of trails that are regularly used by hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians. The Pipeline Trail crosses through the park and is wide and flat—in fact, it is quite common to see families with baby strollers out enjoying the trail. Soaring Eagle is also popular for trail running competitions. Soaring Eagle Regional Park is 600 acres of mature forests, wetlands, and wildlife habitat. Soaring Eagle sits above Patterson Creek on the edge of the Sammamish Plateau along the western flank of the Snoqualmie River Valley. This natural area provides sanctuary for black bear, bobcat, black tail deer and more than 40 species of birds.
King County Parks partners with groups such as Washington Trails Association, Friends of Soaring Eagle, the Boy Scouts, and hiking and biking enthusiasts who volunteer to help us maintain the trails and preserve the park’s natural heritage.
