New Walking Trails Coming to Baqwab (Meadowbrook Prairie)

The Cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie are working together with the Si View Metropolitan Park District (SVMPD) and the Meadowbrook Farm Preservation Association (MFPA) to create more walking trails at Meadowbrook Prairie.

Through new trails, this effort will link Meadowbrook Prairie with the Snoqualmie Middle School, Centennial Fields Park, and the Meadowbrook Farm Interpretive Center.

Additionally, with the help of a separate grant, new signs that share the history of the original Snoqualmie Prairie, known as Baqwab, have been put up. These signs were made with input from the Snoqualmie Tribe and highlight Baqwab’s significance, how it was managed, and its historical use by the tribe.

The design of this project carefully considers the impact on the Prairie Lands and its wildlife, urging visitors to be considerate and respectful.

The King County Parks Levy Grant Program is partly funding this project. The planning phase is underway, and construction is expected to start in 2024.

  • Wonderful – over 25 years of planning coming to fruition. Coupled with the asphalt trail parallel with Park/Boalch, this gives citizens a loop trail between Boalch and SR-202 through the heart of our 460 acre Meadowbrook Farm Park.
