Enumclaw is a city in King County, Washington, United States. The population was 10,669 at the 2010 census. The 2015 estimate is 11,609.
The Enumclaw Plateau, on which the city resides, was formed by a volcanic mudflow (lahar) from Mount Rainier approximately 5,700 years ago.
The name Enumclaw is derived from a Salish Native American term that translates as "place of evil spirits", apparently referring to Enumclaw Mountain, located about 6 miles (9.7 km) to the north, and referring either to some evil incident that occurred there or to the occasional powerful windstorms from the east that affect the region. Native American mythology tells the story of two Pacific Northwest Native American brothers – Enumclaw and Kapoonis – whose father turned them into thunder and lightning respectively. The City of Enumclaw says the name means "thundering noise".
Enumclaw is located at 47°12′9″N 121°59′39″W (47.202401, -121.994044).
The city is located in the midst of flat, level farmlands and dairy farms in the east Puget Sound lowlands. The flat geography in the middle of mountainous territory is due to the ancient Osceola Mudflow from nearby Mount Rainier.
The city is unique in the fact that it is landlocked by farm preservation on three sides and protected forestlands to the east. The city is nestled against the Cascade foothills.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.27 square miles (11.06 km²), of which, 4.26 square miles (11.03 km²) is land and 0.01 square miles (0.03 km²) is water.
While Enumclaw is entirely located in King County, the city owns some park property within the boundaries of Pierce County.
