Taylor Mountain Forest

Taylor Mountain Forest is located south and east of Tiger Mountain, south of I-90 and east of SR 18, between the communities of Hobart and North Bend in eastern King County. The 1822-acre site, which offers sweeping views of Mount Rainier, forested wetlands, and meadows of wild flowers, provides an important habitat link between the City of Seattle's Cedar River Watershed and Tiger Mountain State Forest.

Taylor Mountain's trails are used by hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers. This working forest is intended to demonstrate environmentally sound forest management, protect and restore ecological systems, and provide passive recreational opportunities.

The Taylor Mountain Public Use Plan and Trails Assessment (2004) was a partnership planning project between the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (WADNR), King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks (DNRP), and the City of Seattle - Cedar River Watershed. The plan identifies recreational opportunities, backcountry trails, and development and maintenance needs in in the greater Taylor Mountain area.

Acreage: 1822
