Join King County Parks and Recreation at this restoration site in the scenic Snoqualmie Valley. Tokul Bypass is a site that was recently acquired to help the connection of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail.  The Tokul Bypass property is mostly old pasture land, and volunteers will join staff from King County and Mountains to Sound Greenway to plant trees near the pond to start transitioning the site back to forest.

Participants under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
What to Bring

For safety, volunteers are required to wear:

  • Long pants (we’ll be working with tools, so no shorts!)
  • Sturdy, close-toed shoes (absolutely no sandals)
  • Gloves (provided)

In addition, we recommend that participants bring:

  • Warm layers
  • Big sack lunch
  • At least one full water bottle
  • Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc…
Driving Directions
From I-90, take Snoqualmie Exit/Hwy 18. Go north on Snoqualmie Parkway to the end of the road. Turn left on Railroad Ave. SE. Take Tokul road SE at round-a-bout. Turn right at SE 60th Street and park near the end of the road. Look for Greenway signs and staff--we will walk into the planting location together. Google maps: https://goo.gl/maps/GU1R2JB49Fm
