Our friends at Feet First want YOU to find a way to march during the month of March, 2021:

Hi Kent Walkers of all ages,

Feet First wants to encourage you to:

KEEP WALKING THROUGH WINTER!

Each month over the winter, Feet First features a different walk in or close to Kent. You can enjoy these walks any day you wish to go, in your own time.

Cindy and Janice walk along the Soos Creek Trail last August.

CINDY & JANICE ARE OUR MARCH FEET FIRST WALKERS OF THE MONTH. THEIR RECOMMENDED WALK FOR MARCH:

Walk the Soos Creek Trail south from Gary Grant Park

LOCATION: Gary Grant Park, SE 208th Street, Kent. (first left after 136th Ave. SE); Find on Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/fpAzzBwbsYF2

Looking over from the Gary Grant Park parking lot to restrooms on left and park shelter ahead.

WALK DETAILS:
From the park take the crosswalk over SE 208th Street and continue south along the Soos Creek Trail. There are some good views on a fine day.

View looking south east from the Soos Creek Trail with Mt. Rainier in the distance.

DISTANCE: Walk up to 3.0 miles round trip (or more or less if you prefer) at your own speed.

FEATURES: What Cindy and Janice like about this walk is:

”Many ducks were observed and it is quiet and peaceful.  Easy to travel to this walk from Kent.”

ACCESS: All the trail is paved and flat, so is suitable for those using wheelchairs, strollers etc.

WALKING WITH FEET FIRST: Cindy and Janice say: “Feet First walks give us a chance to socialize outside with our friends during the pandemic.”
