Cougar Mountain Wildland Park. This is a great opportunity for youth and families to come out and join us on National Trails Day. Kids bring your parents and parents bring your kids and enjoy a day in the great outdoors. We have been working on two projects in this area of Cougar Mountain and we will see which one needs the most help that day. One project is a reroute on the Coal Creek Falls trail and the other is to help improve the tread and drainage on the Bagley Seam trail. Both are fun projects and we are sure you will have a great day.

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.

Driving directions:
From I-90: Take Exit 13 and drive south on Lakemont Blvd SE for 3.0 miles and there will be a parking lot on the left. Pull in here and you will see the Red Town trailhead.(Driving time from Seattle: approximately 30 minutes.)
