trail running

Squak Mountain State Park is a 1,545-acre, day-use park just outside of Issaquah and a short 15-minute drive from Seattle. The forested park features miles of trails in wilderness solitude for both equestrians and hikers alike.

Enjoyed this hike, the incline makes for a good workout, several hiking trails to choose from throughout this area. The higher the elevation the more snow was on the ground (around 6-7 inches) Yak Trax are suggested. Looking forward to coming back and hiking another trail.

This is a nice morning hike if you have a few hours to explore and enjoy nature. As a hike it can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be. Large portions of it used to be an old road used for jeeping so it isn't the most diverse trail however the nature around can be very interesting and the layout of the mountain itself makes for a very interesting hike. It is a easy to moderate trail but you can adjust that as you set your own pace. These trails and really the whole area in general would be dog friendly and great for trail running.

this is may valley loop!

the trail markings were really confusing and we ended up on a couple different trails that for sure wasn't this one. also, the trail isn't called what they named it on here, it's actually called central peak.

Relaxing back and out trail. Good for runners, dogs, and kids. bit of an incline but worth it to see the fireplace. would have been nice to see a sign with the history behind the house built in the 50s and burnt down by vandals.

Great hike. No snow

The hike was great.
There's a few trails there, we actually went to Bullitt Fireplace one, if you take kids with you be ready to take a rest stops 'cause trail leads you up all the way.
