Where to Meet and Parking Information
Volunteers will meet and park at the Granite Creek Trailhead: https://goo.gl/maps/6n9KqKKYAAn From Seattle, drive east on I-90 to exit 34 (Edgewick Road). Turn left (north) onto 468th Street and follow it to the junction with the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road (Forest Road 56). Turn right and continue up the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road for approximately 5.5 miles to the Granite Creek trailhead parking area on the right. Look for Greenway signs and staff.
Additional Information

For over a decade, Mountains to Sound Greenway has worked to protect the scenic Middle Fork Valley of the Snoqualmie River. The Middle Fork Valley is a treasure for anyone living in or visiting the greater Seattle area. A person seeking a day of adventure could leave downtown Seattle and, in less than an hour’s time, reach the gateway to pristine Cascades wilderness. From there, that person could set out on any of dozens of trails leading to mountain peaks, hidden lakes, or old-growth forests. The Granite Creek trail offers a quiet getaway from the popular hikes along I-90. Hikers will wander switchbacks throughout second growth forests and be stopped by the stunning views of the Middle Fork Valley. Greenway volunteers have worked to plant native plants at the trailhead as well as maintian and build trail along Granite Creek trail.
