Cherry Creek is a lowland watershed tributary to the Snoqualmie Floodplain. Restoration to date has focused on the highly modified agricultural floodplain, which is part of the Snoqualmie Agricultural Production District. The floodplain is agricultural, but with areas currently in horse boarding and duck hunting rather than crop production. Headwaters are low elevation with Private Forest and Rural Residential parcels. Most of the basin is in King County with the northern extent in Snohomish County. The City of Duvall is located near the mouth.
