Trails for Mountain Biking and Hiking at Tennant Trailhead Park
Tennant Trailhead Park is a 32-acre parcel on Rattlesnake Mountain that will offer trails for mountain biking and hiking as well as a picnic area and viewpoints. One of the key elements of the future park is a trail system of family focused mountain biking trails that are easy and short enough for absolute beginners yet provide progression through a future connection to the Raging River system for some truly epic riding experiences. These beginner trails will be a welcome addition to the local trail inventory, and best of all reachable on a bike from many of our local neighborhoods. We are excited for all the benefits this new park will provide for our community!
Funded by Si View's capital bond, the design is now in progress and phase I construction planned for 2021-2022. The trailhead facilities and parking are funded by King County Parks and scheduled for construction in 2022-2023. Additional funding will be sought through grants for future phases.

Tollgate Park site is uniquely suited to connect the community with food through farm-based experimental learning opportunities including vegetable farming and growing small livestock, u-pick opportunities for the public, youth programs and camps, workshops for adults and operating a farm stand.

Northern District Community Outreach - In Progress
Neighborhoods in the northern portion of Si View Parks District such as Moon Valley, Ernie's Grove, and Tokul have been identified as priority areas for future park improvements in the District's comprehensive plan. We are currently exploring park and trail improvement opportunities in this area. Community listening session was hosted in late January 2020. Meeting notes can be reviewed here. Community idea board can be reviewed here. District staff will continue to collect input from neighbors, research ideas received for feasibility, and identify potential partners prior to developing any plans. Community participation will be critical throughout the process. To submit additional input, please contact Minna Rudd at .
