Peaceful woodlands on Cougar Mtn.

Puget Sound Area. Calling all youth ages 14-18! Come out for a fun day of trail work on a WTA youth work party! Cougar Mountain County Park is looking for some help to build a new section trail near the Sky Country trailhead. This is one of the trails in the north central part of the park. This trail typifies what is essentially a small piece of wildland in an increasingly urban setting. While enjoying the woods and wildlife while working on this trail you can contemplate and thank the foresight and vision of Harvey Manning and others who helped to protect this area.

Work party specifically for teens!

Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, bordered by Lake Washington, Bellevue, Issaquah and Renton, is a mishmash of roads, trails, abandoned Army missile silos, abandoned landfills and somehow, plenty of wildlife. Cougar really do live here, and plenty of other creatures stumble across the trail from time to time. Not only is it King County’s largest park, it is one of the largest wildland parks in an urban area in the United States. Amazing views can be had from higher up of the Seattle area and the beginnings of Snoqualmie Pass.
