Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park is a regional park in King County, Washington, near the towns of Bellevue and Issaquah.
This is a wonderful area. It's close to the city, and you can get a decent amount of elevation gain in a short distance. Good for getting some exercise, and some peace and quiet. It's not heavily used. The trails are very well marked, and you have a lot of options for different routes.
1/13/2017 (Friday) -- This loop passes all of the three small seasonal "named" falls on the Cougar Mountain, and two "named" lookouts. Its length and difficulty are easy to moderate for most hikers, but it lightly used in most times. One can take the loop either clockwise or counter-clockwise, to get different feelings.
Peaceful, and wilderness. Love it.
Nice hike, easily marked trails, close to main road but seems like you're deep in the woods. Great workout, with switch backs. Flowing stream and little brooks/bridges to walk over. Lots of connecting trails to get lost on. I will be back for more adventures.
