trail running


kid friendly


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.

As many others have expressed, this hike is not about the view at the top but the journey there. The top is actually home to a microwave tower, trees blocking a view, and a port-o-potty.

That being said, the journey up is wooded and beautiful - it's great exercise. The main trail outlined in this app does include quite a bit of gravel road, keep that in mind. There are also so many different paths you could take it's quite easy to get turned around.

I do not believe I would return again but it's nice to cross of the list.

A great, easy summer hike. Spiderweb of trails to explore.

There's some horse poop along the way... bring plenty of water... light traffic.. not all dogs are leashed but all the ones we saw today were well behaved... after the horse gate it gets harder.

Short but some what challenging hike. signs get confusing but all connect some way or another. I would go again for a nice quick inner city hike. when it says peak you would think of a nice view. We found no amazing view points but it was fun going to the big bench & back.
