Where to Meet and Parking Information
Google maps: https://goo.gl/maps/KvBKWvQWFoD2 From Seattle, follow I-90 Eastbound for 18 miles and take exit 22 toward Preston/Fall City. Turn left onto SE 82nd St, and continue to turn right onto SE High Point Way. This road turns into Preston-Fall City Rd SE, continue straight. In four miles, continue straight onto WA-202 E/Redmond-Fall City Rd SE/River St. At the traffic circle, take the 2nd exit onto WA-203 N. Turn left onto NE 40th St - look for Greenway event signs and staff.

King County Parks and Recreation's 574-acre park sits at the confluence of the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley. A 500-foot suspension foot bridge crosses the Snoqualmie River and offers terrific views of the river and Cascade foothills. During the fall, you can observe spawning salmon in the river below and eagles and osprey soaring above.

Tolt-MacDonald Park has been and continues to be an important cultural site and a focal point for the Snoqualmie Tribe's restoration program. Tolt-MacDonald is also a favorite destination for exploring trails on foot or mountain bike. Volunteers may be helping repair and maintain these well-used trails. Greenway volunteers also may be planting native trees and shrubs along the Tolt River to support restoration efforts led by the Snoqualmie Tribe and King County Parks and Recreation.
