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.

Good hike. Although the mile markers seem to be off. (1.9, 1.6 & 1.3 ) At one point, they forget to mention the hike that we are on & change the name. But.. we enjoyed the hike & will most likely do it again during the summer.

Super fun moderate hike when you're looking for some peace and quiet in the woods.

Well kept trail, but it's all about the journey and not the destination with this hike.

it was a fairly well kept trail and the greenery was beautiful. But unless you plan on continuing on to another trail, the end point was a bit of a let down. It ends simply at the covered conjunction of other trails. No views to speak of. But still a nice day hike.

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.
