Part of the Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park. The Indian Trail has a lot to offer on a short hike. There are several other trails that branch off from this trail which can provide numerous short hikes or for a full day of site seeing. To access the Indian Trail you can hike down the Red Town Trail from the main parking area or from the 171st street cul-de-sac. If you are not looking for a full day hike and are looking for a quick 1-2 hour hike, parking off of the 171st street is your best bet. From the cul-de-sac you can reach the Far County Falls in 20 minutes. The Far County Falls are the main attraction on this trail. The size of the falls changes greatly depending on how much it has rained in the previous week. In the summer time the falls can be just a trickle of water, barely enough to moisten the mossy rocks. The best time to see the falls are in late winter to spring time. They are a great site to see as few people make the journey down to the falls due to how much they can vary.

I am not sure why this wouldn’t get more 5 stars. It’s appropriately rated, easy to get to, trial is nice, and there are many many smaller trails to make it more challenging or longer. I went to both waterfalls, the first set is about .5 miles from the cul de sac, and cascade waterfalls are 1.0 in but another .5 uphill to get to. Very little mud, very few hikers (2pm on a Thursday till 5pm). I had a small dog and a baby strapped to my front and was comfortable the whole time.

Wasn't what I expected. It was very dull for me & my dog. If you want a long flat hike for a few miles it's okay. But nothing special.

Easy hike with kids. We did a couple side trails too for about a 4mile total hike.

very easy hike, both of my knees are bad and this trail was pretty easy going. A couple of Tylenol were needed on the way back but not too bad.

Lots of pretty flowers. Found an oval worry stone in the ball park meadow, if anyone is missing it.

Short and easy hike with very little traffic. If your children are into slugs and snails, this is a great place to come.
Super safe trail for very young hikers as well.

Not a bad little hike - Not that easy to get to bc of a lot of one lane roads and driving through neighborhoods however T.H. is well marked. Trail was in really good condition and very flat. Waterfalls were really nice - you could get pretty close and get some great pix. I decided to break-off from the trail to go up for the so called "look out". Not a great decision - the look out was very small and not very impressive
