Tennant Trailhead Park

12201 W. Ribary Way, North Bend WA 98045
Tennant Park Opening April 19, 2024
Tennant Trailhead Park provides a network of family focused mountain biking and hiking trails that are easy and short enough for absolute beginners yet provide progression, and through a future connection to Rattlesnake Mountain Scenic Area and Raging River State Forest, access to more advanced trail experiences. These new trails are a welcome addition to the local inventory, and best of all, accessible on foot or on a bike from many local neighborhoods.

In 2016, the City of North Bend, Si View Metropolitan Park District, King County Parks, and the Trust for Public Lands acquired this 32-acre property with funding support from a Conservation Futures Grant and the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Under public ownership, the site is preserved in perpetuity from development, providing conservation, recreation, and education for all to enjoy. This uniquely located property is part of a greenbelt along I-90 that connects to over 100,000 acres of public lands and preserves the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Scenic Byway viewshed.

The trailhead and trail system has been designed and developed in partnership with King County Parks, City of North Bend, and Si View Metropolitan Park District, with support from Snoqualmie Tribe and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.

Thanks to a partnership with the Snoqualmie Tribe, park visitors are introduced to tribal history. All trail names are posted in the traditional Lushootseed language. The trailhead kiosk includes a pronunciation guide and an opportunity to learn about the connection tribes have to these ancestral lands.

This park is managed by Si View Metropolitan Park District. The District strives to enhance the quality of life for all community residents through facilitation of recreation programs and parks in Snoqualmie Valley. All park users must adhere to park rules. Failure to comply can result in criminal trespass charges. Park hours are 7AM until dusk daily, exceptions may apply.

Trail Safety

Tennant Trailhead Park trail system is open to non-motorized users. The trails are closed to equestrian use. Some trails are directional to separate uphill and downhill travel, and some trails are designated 'hiker only' or 'biker only ' to avoid user conflict, please adhere to all safety signs. Ride your bike with care, feel and respect the land, stay on trails, taste the wind as you descend, feel light in the air as you jump and play, let the trail animals inspire you to do your best and learn, and come back to help maintain these trails to take care of these public lands.

Interested in volunteering with trail projects?

Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance has been 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.
