NEW — 6 a.m. May 6, 2014
A public celebration of a recent Squak Mountain land acquisition is at 10 a.m. May 10, when partnership leaders and environmental supporters will make brief remarks and invite everyone to take any of several short, guided hikes through the forest.
The event includes options for hikes of varying lengths through the property. Access to the celebration location is at 10610 Renton-Issaquah Road S.E.
The entire parcel was 226 acres that was set to be logged a year ago.
The forestland is closed to the public until 2015, so the May 10 event will be an early opportunity for the public to see the property.
King County Parks must prepare the site for public use before full access can be allowed, including property cleanup, removing infrastructure, establishing trail routes and ensuring property is safe and ready for public use.
