Stick to those New Year’s Resolutions and Get Outside in King County Parks

We all make them- those grand New Year’s resolutions that are so hard to stick to. Here are some reasonable and attainable resolution to get you motivated. We’re lucky to live in King County where nature is surrounding us so get outside and enjoy our parks and trails close to home.

Here are three King County Parks inspired resolutions:

Visit one new King County Park each month.

Walk, bike or run at least 10 miles of KCP Regional Trails each month.

Hike at least 10 miles of KCP Backcountry Trails each month.
