Starting Monday, August 14 the Seattle Parks and Recreation Trails Program will be rerouting the lower section of Carkeek Park’s Viewlands Trail where it intersects with the Pipers Creek trails. The existing structure, built in 1999, has become unstable due to water damage and slides over the years and has reached the end of its life.
The reroute will take a gentler approach just north of the existing trail and will not have the same grade and water issues. In a separate project, we will decommission the stairs and restore that area.
The existing trails will be open while we are working 8:30 a.m.–2:45 p.m., August 14–September 15.
Please keep alert for vehicles moving materials supplies along the Pipers Creek Trail.
We appreciate your patience as we work to improve your experience at the park!
This work is partially funded by a “Meet Me at the Park” grant from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and the Walt Disney Company.
