Weekend hike assignment: Tolt MacDonald Park
Your weekend hike assignment is the Tolt MacDonald Park in Carnation.
The 27-acre park is 40 minutes from Seattle, and surrounds the confluence of the Tolt and Snoqualmie rivers.
The centerpiece is a 500 foot long suspension bridge built by some 20,000 Boy Scouts, and the Army Reserves in 1976. The bridge sways and the deck has gaps that make crossing a challenge for unsure feet, but the park is well worth a little bravery.
It has a long list of amenities, including sports fields, picnic spots, yurts for camping, river beaches, and a old restored barn that can be rented for events.
Have a great weekend!
