Hiking Henry's Ridge Open Space

Henry’s Ridge Open Space is a popular destination for mountain bikers, but these trails are open to hikers as well. There is no official parking lot for this park but the trails can be accessed from three points within the Maple Ridge Neighborhood.

This open space is comprised of 248 acres and 19 miles of trails. It is connected to the nearby Black Diamond Open Space and Lake Sawyer Regional Park.

Be sure to print a trail map from King County Parks before heading out because there are a lot of intertwining routes in this park. Also check signage throughout to determine which trails are best for hikers rather than mountain bikes.
