About the Park
Danville-Georgetown Open Space is a 340-acre park located east of Maple Valley. The park is named for the historic railroad line that traveled through the site and the nearby former Georgetown mining town. Former logging roads provide the backbone of an extensive 14-mile trail network within the forested open space.
The site is bordered by Rock Creek Natural Area to the west, the 315-acre Kent Watershed to the south and privately-owned working forest land to the east. Nearby are also the Wetland 79 Natural Area, the BN Peninsula Natural Area, Big Bend Natural Area, Landsburg Reach Natural Area and the 17.4 mile Cedar River Trail connecting Lake Washington to Landsburg.
Note: While the trails at Danville-Georgetown are multi-use, in 2013, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and Backcountry Horsemen of Washington, Tahoma Chapter entered into a voluntary agreement wherein trail signs would be installed within Danville-Georgetown and Henry's Ridge Open Spaces to indicate which trails are primarily used by which group according to which group performs the majority of stewardship and trail maintenance at each site.
