Well maintained trails and a beautiful setting! Only problem is the trail heads are confusing. We pooped around several times, and while we found the swamp and the mine shaft which were great, we never found the waterfalls. Ran into a couple other hikers with the same issue, haha.

Hiked on a Sunday evening, clockwise. Ran into a handful of hikers and one jogger. Most of the hike was pretty easy, except there were a few steep sections in the last mile or so. There is a decent view at the top. I would like to come back again to explore the falls, and maybe hike the opposite direction.

A beautiful hike for a sunny day. The trees give you just the right amount of cover so that you don't have the sun beating down on you but can still enjoy it. Some good inclines and it's great for dogs. The water falls have a beautiful eeriness to them and are excellent for breaks and photo ops.

Some parts are a steep incline but nothing unmanageable. Great place to hike with your dog.

Not easy to follow with so many trails on Cougar Mtn, but it's a great compilation of trails to make close to a 7 mile hike.
