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 this 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.
Tennant Trailhead Park is possible thanks to a strong partnership between the City of North Bend, Si View Metropolitan Park District, King County and the Trust for Public Land working together in preserving this site on Rattlesnake Mountain in perpetuity providing conservation, recreation and education for all to enjoy. This beautiful piece of Rattlesnake Mountain is located south of Interstate 90 at Exit 31 in North Bend, and ensures contiguous public ownership connecting the community of North Bend with Rattlesnake Mountain.
The master plan for Tennant Trailhead Park was adopted in March 2019 by the City of North Bend and Si View Metro Parks. Funded by Si View's capital bond, the design has been completed and phase I construction planned for 2022. The trailhead facilities and parking are funded by King County Parks and scheduled for construction in 2023-2024. Additional funding will be sought through grants for future phases.
Interested in volunteering with trail projects? Please contact Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, our partner for Tennant Trailhead Park development. An enthusiastic group of community volunteers and the Friends of Trails have also been busy on-site spending hours cleaning up and hauling away truckloads of trash from the site in preparation for trail building efforts. We are grateful for these efforts, and invite others to join!
