Green River Trail Quest

This summer I decided to hike the Green River Trail.  Most folks bicycle along the trail but I did it all on my feet.

This is a trail easily accessible to me versus driving into the Cascades each weekend.   The beginning point is only 15 minutes away from my house.  It also was a place I am familiar with since I had lived in a small house where the Cecil Moses Park now exists.

Over the months I would drive to where I left off and then walk a couple of miles taking photos of bridges, nature, birds, the river and living in some history moments.   Then I would turn around and walk back to my car.  Some return trips I took another route or short cut but in most cases it was the same path.

This quest ended Thursday when I made it to Foster Park in Kent.  This is where the Green River Trail meets the Interurban Trail.  A beginning or an end or both. The extra meaning to this park is my maiden name is Foster so it was a special place to end the quest.

After I wrote the last blog post on my trip down the trail, I decided to better organize the postings.  I re-categorized them all under “Green River Trail” and composed this summary post with links to the major pieces.

Hope you enjoy a little meandering down the river!

If you enjoyed this series of walks along the Green River Trail you might find my quest north along the Duwamish River.  Here is a link to the directory of posts.
