Beautiful walk and mostly flat and easy. Wonderful place to take a walk. Found a few salmonberries to snack on along the way! However at the very end of our walk we heard a bear growl! We did not see it but heard it! Make sure to make a lot of noise while walking and carrying bear spray would be smart!

I would recommend this trail if you're looking for an easy hike. The first portion of hike is closed down due to parts of the ground caving. The rest of trail is open and accessible.

Decent hike. I had my camera and didn't find much that stood out for special pictures. I did enjoy the closed in feeling from having the trees block out the sun. I think it is more like 3.5 stars, since it's not quite as low as a 3 and 4 is definitely too high of a rating.

8/4/2018 (Saturday) -- This is an easy loop in the woods with good trail condition and light traffic. Very pleasant in all weather.

For Spring, the trails on Cougar Mountain were quite dry. I spent most of the day hiking around Cougar Mountain just to experience the area. Still been knew to hiking, Cougar Mountain offers plenty of elevation gain in certain spots to get the lungs going and the blood pumping. Jerry's Duck Pond was one destination on my hike. Seeing the launch site and learning about the history out here was another destination on my life. The vegetation was thick in some place, other places it was not. There isn't much else to report on these hikes other than Cougar Mountain is a wonderful place to hike around to get away from the city life for a day. The trails are well maintained and the forest canopy above does offer in some light in places. If it's raining, wear rain gear if you'd like to stay dry.
