Big Finn Hill
About the Park:
Big Fill Hill Park, between Kenmore and Kirkland, is both a 220-acre wooded oasis with 9.5 miles of trails and a park with a range of recreation options. Bisected by Juanita Drive NE, the eastern portion of Big Finn Hill Park has ballfields, a play area, a picnic shelter, and some unpaved trails. The western portion is full of looping trails through the Big Finn Hill forest that connect to a seven-mile trail network within Saint Edward State Park to the northwest.
The trails at Big Finn Hill Park are steeper in the north and south portions of the park, with more moderate rolling terrain along the ridge tops. Keep an eye out for deer, owls, hawks, and eagles.
Park Activities: ballfields, dog walking, hiking, horse riding, lacrosse, mountain biking, nature observation, parking lot, play equipment, picnic shelter, soccer, restrooms, volunteer
