Friends of Big Hill Finn Park Trails

This is a non-profit organization established to assist King County Parks with the dissemination of information about and implementation of the park trails plan of March 2014. The mission of the trails group is to promote safe, sustainable, and multi-use trails within a healthy, natural environment while fostering relationships and engaging the broader community.
