Echo Mountain/Cedar Mountain Trail is a 5.2 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Renton, WA that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and birding and is accessible year-round.
The trail was enjoyable and at the end of the trail you get to the shore of the lake blocked off by a gigantic tree and that's the end ..the view is spectacular but the downside is that not a lot of room there so if more than 2 people would feel crowded; it's just a small opening in the woods to see the lake.
okay, it's actually called Spring Lake/Lake Desire Park
great for runs, lots of trails to change it up. kids enjoy it also.
Great short workout
This trail was alright. The forestry was nice, but there weren't many scenic areas on the hike. I wasn't able to find the overlook at the top of trail either. I also tried to follow one of the trials to the lake but it ended up leading to a water tower. You could see the lake peaking through the trees, but no great views. If you really want to see it go to the water access at the trailhead.
Excellent first hike! Quick trip to good enough of a view. 10yo son & I took about a half hour to make it up.
