[ARCHIVED] Lord Hill Regional Park Site and Management Plan Open House

Lord Hill Park 630 Lookout

Snohomish County Parks, Recreation and Tourism is in the early stages of developing a Site and Management plan for Lord Hill Regional Park, and will be hosting a public open house in the 4H Building of the Evergreen State Fairgrounds on Wednesday, June 21st from 6 -7:30 pm. Elements of the plan include:

  • Establishing Natural Areas
  • Site and design a new ADA accessible looping trail within the park
  • Renovate and re-route existing hiking trails to establish a hiker-only trail system
  • Site and design 2 miles of proposed new equestrian trails
  • Renovate and re-route existing single track mountain bike tracks to reduce conflict with multi-use loops
  • Site and design new mountain bike bypass routes to provide an uphill alternative to the Pipeline Trail and to reduce conflict with multi-use loops
  • Site and design new mountain bike single tracks for beginning, intermediate and advanced riders
  • Perform Critical Area Studies in locations of proposed new trails and re-routes
  • Targeted plant surveys by Washington Native Plant Society
  • Evaluation of additional parking areas

Come and view the proposals and meet our project partners from Friends of Lord Hill, Back Country Horsemen of Washington and the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
