Bellevue, Washington Map

Really tranquil place for a solo run, even this time of year. Dogs not allowed per signage, not sure if it’s enforced through. LOTS of people setup with camera equipment for pictures that made the paths a little crowded.

Kids and dog friendly, love it.

Just hiked to falls and back out. nice slow incline nothing dramatic. Lots of people, and dogs not on leash..

decently tough hike. the view from the top is great! two view point from top. a restroom at the top is a great help!

Good place to start and end. Updated parking lot helps a lot.

nice trail, nothing too exciting to see but great woodsy walk near the city

When we arrived to the trailhead we ran into two girls who had their SUV broken into with a smashed in window. **REMINDER** Take ALL of your valuables out of your car before you hike, including registration, car insurance info and garage door opener. The trail was nice, well maintained and only came across a few other hikers. Dog friendly with signage at different posts. Several trails to choose from. We clocked in 5.6 miles total. The waterfall was a nice surprise as well as the cave. Enjoyable

Loved this hike. So peaceful and the trails were well maintained. I recommend doing the Primrose loop. This hike was moderate. I have to admit I did get winded a few times but I made it. The scenery was Beautiful.

Great trail 10 minute drive from home!
From Coal Creek Trailhead 3 miles to Cougar Mountain Trailhead turned around 3 miles back. Lots of history and information about the coal mine. Beautiful fall colors. Creek sounds nice along with many birds singing. Pay attention to signs or you might end up down the wrong trail like I did... a few times.

Love this trail for a nice moderate hike near seattle. The drive is easy and I’ve never had a problem with parking. There are a series of trails that loop throughout the mountain and a great map posted at the trail head. I tend to add or skip extra trails depending on how I’m feeling. A few waterfalls and views throughout. Be aware that not everyone leashes their dogs though. I stopped a a view point for lunch and a golden Retriever ran up and stole the other half of my sandwich sitting next to me!

Great short trail through an old growth forest patch. Parking is a bit of a pain.

Nice trail not too far from the city. Wasn't too busy, with a good mix of scenery - old woods, swampy marsh, farm land. Great berry picking in the summer.

Easy access from apartment nearby. Beautiful autumn leaves everywhere.

it was an ok hike with the littles. Hiked around 5 miles. can't wait to come back in spring time out when there is rain to see the falls better. They were all dried up.

Not too heavily trafficked. It was fun to explore the Slough. not the prettiest of views with the highway and office park but, smooth easy kayaking and a fun few hours on the water.
