Kennedy Creek Trail System History.
Oakland Bay Chapter started to work on the Kennedy Creek Trail system back in 2001. We started off with just a few trails and only logging grades. Currently today we have about 25 miles of trail. Over the last 19 years our dedicated members have logged in over 19,000 volunteer hours to put in and maintain the trail system. In 2015 Oakland Bay Chapter joined forces with the Capitol Rides Chapter to work as a team. We have had to over come many obstacles: working through storm damage, logging, landslide and thinning not to mention the constant growth of blackberry's, salal and weeds to keep these trails open and usable. We have partnered with Green Diamond, Taylor United Shellfish and South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group, and just recently DNR. In keeping with our mission statement, our members are proud of the work they have done and really enjoy seeing the public out and about on the trails. We are excited to announce that the Kennedy Creek Chum Run Marathon took place this year on March 7Th 2020.

Spectacular Views From All Directions!!
Trail Sign Design !!
Trail names where chosen for many reasons. Something we saw along the trail, the person that put the trail in, because of a rock formation or because we could not come up with anything better. Example: Skull, we found 4 Skulls on the trail while we were putting the trail it in.
There are so many places to ride with beautiful views in all directions.
The Kennedy Creek fun ride is held every year on the 3rd weekend in May. Riders come from all over the state to join. Some photos taken along the way.
