COVID-19 Recreate Responsibly

 

As recreation lands across Washington start to re-open this week--including King County regional trails and parks, and trails on State Parks land--Cascade is reminding people to “practice safe cycling” to avoid spreading or contracting COVID-19.

While recreation areas are beginning to re-open for day use, bike camping is not allowed. While this may change as the season progresses, one thing is certain: this year’s hiking, biking and outdoor recreation season will be different than in previous years.

Cascade will provide updates and guidance as conditions change, but we encourage users to “know before you go” to find out if trails at your destination are open, and to remain flexible in your planning so that trails and other destinations don’t become crowded.

 

Check current trail and park openings before you go

Bike Routes

At this time, Cascade is not promoting or recommending specific Free Group Ride routes. Public Health officials and Governor Jay Inslee recommend recreating from your front door and finding walking and riding opportunities in your own neighborhood.

However, if you are interested in being paired up with a Ride Leader in your specific area who has knowledge of neighborhood routes that you can use while on a bike ride, please email davidu@cascade.org and we would be happy to connect you.
