Go ‘Hawks! Then go hike, bike or run

OK, 12’s, since you’re obviously going to be pumped up by the Seahawks’ victory on Sunday – and since it’s an early game with plenty of postgame daylight – why not burn off your excess energy by paying a visit to a King County park or trail?

Head to the hills and explore Cougar-Squak Corridor Park, one of King County Parks’ newest gems. The recently completed Margaret’s Way Trail winds 6.4 glorious miles up through the park, past tall trees and wetlands that feed salmon-bearing streams. This trail offers the opportunity to link up with a bevy of other trails that will take you deep into the adjacent Squak Mountain State Park.

Looking for something flatter? Grab your running shoes, bike, or skateboard and get onto a stretch of King County Parks’ 175 miles of regional trails, such as or Soos Creek and Sammamish River trails. These popular trails let you run, roll, or stroll through fine scenery – and many regional trails offer great access to shops and offices, which means they double as a carbon-free transportation option. Being greener was never more fun.

Go ‘Hawks!

King County Executive, Dow Constantine and employees are obviously eager to see the upcoming game.
