Concerned rider wants route reopened

The Snoqualmie Valley Trail is one of the few horse trails left ‘close in’ in King County. Without access to these trails, many equestrians in East King County would have to drive an hour or more to access riding trails — that is, if they have a rig in which to trailer their horses and can afford the gas!

Hundreds of endurance riders condition their horses for competition on these trails each year, and hundreds of trail and pleasure riders enjoy the outdoors while exercising their horses there, as well. Fall City Park provides parking for larger groups of equestrians who want to enjoy the trails – again, it’s one of the few places left where it is even possible to do this.

Please do not close this important and public right of way into one of the most beautiful and heavily used equestrian and biking trails in the region!
