Scenic Cedar River Trail Park is located at the mouth of the Cedar River where it flows north into Lake Washington. This 24-acre park contains picnic areas that are close to the water, play equipment, a non-motorized boat launch, the Renton Rowing Center and the Cedar River Trail. A beautiful spot for viewing birds of all species including blue herons, ospreys, and bald eagles, it is also a place to witness the annual salmon migration in the Cedar River Watershed.
The Cedar River Trail is a paved, multi-use trail that follows the Cedar River from where it enters Lake Washington to the community of Landsburg – 17.3 miles – at the boundary of the City of Seattle’s Cedar River Watershed. The trail follows a historic railroad route along State Route 169, and offers views and access to Lake Washington, downtown Renton, Cedar River Park, Maplewood Golf Course, Ron Regis Park, Cedar Grove Park, and Maple Valley.
