Hockinson Meadows Community Park

Wherever you park, you can easily follow the main path through the park, through the forested area, then along side the roads to the parking for a complete loop of just under one mile.

Be warned, watch your step.  There is a nice big off-leash dog park, which is great to have, but unfortunately I noticed some of the dogs leave deposits elsewhere along the trail.

A path that extends along the entrance drive, also follows 172nd Ave north to 119th St. This gives a 3/4 mile path from the parking lot to walk, jog or bike. You can also ponder a little history on this walk. On the other side of 172nd Ave is China Ditch, so named because it was dug by Chinese labor to drain the surrounding swampy lands. I walked this after a heavy rainfall, so there were several large puddles in the path to skirt around.
