Located southeast of Seattle, the Cedar River slalom site is situated on City of Seattle and King County property where the Issaquah-Hobart road crosses the river at Landsburg. This is a permanent slalom training site. An old railroad grade, now a trail, follows the river downstream from the slalom course for almost 20 miles towards Lake Washington.

From Seattle, go east on I-90 and take the Front Street exit in Issaquah. After passing through Issaquah, Front Street changes its name to the Issaquah-Hobart Road. Follow this road for about 20 minutes to where the road crosses the river.

Alternatively, take Highway 18, exit at the Issaquah-Hobart road and head towards Hobart. The river is about 5 minutes away.

$10 race registration ($5 for additional classes)
$10 ACA event membership (No additional charge with current ACA membership card; must have card with you!)

Camping available at nearby Kanaskat-Palmer State Park
