Located in the "Issaquah Alps," Cougar Mountain showcases a variety of natural features from forests and waterfalls to meadows and cliffs. Sweeping vistas of the Cascades, Lake Sammamish, and Bellevue, Seattle and beyond can found at different points throughout the park. Rather than a single "anti-aircraft" trail, there is a group of trails and loop options that begin at the Anti-Aircraft peak trailhead, including ant-aircraft ridge.
Well kept, well marked. Clean. Easy. 3 miles in about 1 hour.
The trail is closed just after the bear ridge turn off. Was a bit disappointed, but made the best of it.
nice mild hike. Lots of path options
This is a really pretty walk but as expected, still a little muddy. We took the trail as far as we could before having to double back to the 'No name' trail. We eventually met up with the 'Surprise creek' trail and back to Shangrila. For the first 'hike' of the year, it kicked my butt. As a 240lb guy, the uphill from the park boundary up to the 'No-name trail' was the most severe incline. Probably a nice, mellow walk in June/July.
Well marked trails did the AA loop about three miles. Good workout!
nice fast and flowy for all you runners out there, but easy grade that is really made for walking not hiking. Nothing too technical, but beautiful forest to enjoy on the fly.
And the drive in is straight bonkers and worth the trip alone.
short trails that connect make for a good day training.
Went on my first trail run here. The trails are a little muddy right now, but otherwise well maintained. This trail head has a nice parking area, and on a clear day, views of the water.
lots of fun trails that lead into each other.. well maintained trails
This is a pretty easy trail. Grab a map at the trail head, it'll help you choose which trails you want to take and how to get back out. Good for trail running, dog friendly, as well as kid friendly. Well maintained and very little water flow during this time of year.
Not too many people. Lots of different trails to choose from. Good beginners hike. The only good view that I could find was right in front of the parking lot where the picnic area is.
