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.

ok woodsy trail, constant incline on way up but not strenuous. No great views but lovely woods. Light traffic, plenty of parking, well marked.

Well kept trail, easy hike. No view but the fireplace is a milestone anyhow.

This hIke is pretty good. It’s a little hard at the top but overall it’s just a pretty good workout. I only saw two people on the trail which is great. Can’t stand being around people. Make sure you have a Discover pass to park here

Great rainy day hike. No views on top. Watch out for slick rocky paths.

Love the trail up to Central Peak. Phil's Creek trail is overgrown and the trail is a little slick for downhill hiking and I recommend long pants. No views at the top but a great trail for a workout. I recommend maps,compass and GPS. There are plenty of connecting trails and one can easily get lost. Lots of horse poop along Bullitt Gorge trail. Don't forget to visit the Bullitt Fireplace!

It’s a good workout, not many views but lots of beautiful natural to look at ☺️. No “gratifying top” if that makes sense
