This loop links two most popular trailhead/parking lots in the Cougar Mountain Regional Wilderness Park: Red Town and Sky Country. Start from Red Town trailhead. The loop sequentially follows the trails of Military Road, Sky Country (trail and trailhead), Nike Horse, Cave Hole, Coal Creek Falls, Quarry, Indian, Wideside, Rainbow Town, China Creek, then back to the Red Town trailhead/parking lot. It takes around 2 hours to complete.

5/19/2018 (Saturday) -- I added this route and AllTrails approved it. It seems that most Red Town users may not take Military Road Trail up to Sky Country, and then down to Coal Creek Falls. This is loop of about 2 hours' walk that requires more efforts than those most popular trails with moderate elevation gains (more than 700 ft), so it should be considered as an ideal workout for less energetic but active hikers.
