About the park

Flaming Geyser Natural Area is located south of the City of Black Diamond on the Green River and features fairly mature floodplain forests on the north side of the river and steep bluffs on the south side of the river.

Flaming Geyser State Park, which is immediately east of King County's park, is equipped with limited parking (due to the closure for infrastructure repairs), picnic facilities, and restrooms. King County's 76-acre portion has a trail that provides several river access points, but parking and facilities are limited.

Acreage: 76 acres

A gravel road road provides pedestrian access through the site to the creek, and a number of informal trails access different parts of the site.


Flaming Geyser State Park has parking lots, which can be accessed via Southeast Flaming Geyser Road through King County's property.

Limited road shoulder parking is available on the south side of Southeast Green Valley Road, just west of Southeast Flaming Geyser Road.

Parking is also available at the hatchery at 13030 Southeast Auburn-Black Diamond Road.
