Site

The site, located in Carkeek Park, is bordered by NW 116th St., Carkeek Park Rd., the Discovery Center parking lot, a recently developed meadow and trail.  A steep slope on the north side leads to a tributary of Piper's Creek at a horizontal distance of 130' at its closest point. The dominant overstory species include big leaf maple and pine with an understory of beaked hazelnut, salal, ocean spray, Indian plum, sword fern, bracken fern and native blackberry. Invasive non-native plants include English ivy and Himalayan blackberry.
