really nice trail. I went today with my two kids and they loved it!

Absolutely not wheelchair or bike friendly. That being said it is a beautiful trail. Waterfall is dried up but theres an okay fenced off meadow at the end of the trail.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU WALK THIS TRAIL such a beautiful area! And didn’t even know the Ford Slope existed til today! Interesting trail!

Lots of cottonwood blowing around this time of year.

Fun hiking, tons of trails to choose from to match your skill level. Trails are very well marked and maintained.

Easy fun trail to do without thinking! Just some exercise

Easy hike/walk. Not crowded, but got there early. Beautiful waterfall-ish. Not crowded.

A very nice area for hiking. Very easy system and nicely marked.

Nice hike through the woods. When I got there (Monday) the parking lot was packed, but there are so many routes and trails in this park that the trail I was on was uncrowded! Really enjoyable waterfall and creek. No views, but I really enjoyed my walk. Nice and peaceful. Will return to do Long View Peak in a few weeks.

Nice quick hike with a waterfall in the middle.

Great Hike with kids. Beautiful creeks on the way

It’s a great trail but if you’re paying really close attention to the signs, you’ll wander off onto one of the dozens of other trails running through Cougar Mountain and you’ll be there for much longer than you planned. Very kid friendly, saw plenty of families while I was there with kids even as young as toddlers.

Steep sections lead to a fantastic waterfall and a trip next to a talkative creek.
wheel chair friendly doesn't apply to this trail at all

Lots of folks on this trail.

Beautiful snowy day cleaning up after dog owners.

Great for kiddos and pups. Parking a little tricky when busy.

Great loop for taking a kid on a hike or running. Waterfall was strong in January.

My 4 & 5 year old both walked the whole loop! The waterfall was gorgeous. Although parking is a beast, the trail was not packed. We’ll be back!

Great forest trail. Some up and down, but not overly strenuous. We took our 6-month old in a backpack carrier and it wasn't too hard. Waterfall was a nice surprise.

Nice walk; lots of twists and turn, good change in uphill/downhill,

Was great but many folks had their dogs off leash which was frustrating when you have a nervous dog.

Nothing to see. Falls dried up.

The view is normal.

There are many interconnected trails that allow you to expand your hike and explore the other parts of Cougar Mountain.

Seems a highly trafficd trail. It was beautiful and not challenging for our first hike of the year. the only down fall is that despite the trail markers, it was hard to tell if we actually on the right trail.

Its one of my favorite trails when I want a round of quick exercise without the sound of the city right in Bellevue! You can adjust the length of the hike by choosing one of several paths (they usually have a trail map available at the start of the hike). Lots of tree cover so typically a few degrees cooler here.

Beautiful, great morning or afternoon hike!
