Belmondo Reach Natural Area
This property is located in the Belmondo Reach of the Lower Cedar River, as identified through the Cedar River Legacy program which directs public conservation efforts in the Lower Cedar River. Belmondo Reach is located between RM 9.4 and 10.8. Properties in Belmondo Reach are a high priority for future land acquisition to advance flood control and habitat conservation goals. Future acquisitions would add acreage to Belmondo Reach Natural Area.
Belmondo Reach Natural Area consists of a single parcel less than two acres in size, located on the mainstem Cedar River. The natural area is located four miles southeast of Renton and four miles north of Maple Valley just east of SR 169 (Renton-Maple Valley Road) and the Cedar River Trail.
The property is a vacant parcel among residential parcels, supporting typical riparian vegetation of mixed alder, cottonwood, and conifers with both native and invasive species in the understory. The WPA revetment extends along the shoreline through this meander bend.
There is no parking or facilities at the site. The small size of the property and dense vegetation means that there is little public use at this time.
