Cougar Mountain, Issaquah

Directions: From Seattle, take the 90-E to exit 13 for Lakemont blvd. Turn right at Lakemont Blvd. Left at Cougar Mountain Way. Right at 166th.

Trail Information: Within Cougar Mountain one can run for miles and miles. The Sky Country Trailhead, which is where I gave directions has a map to take with you. All the trails are clearly marked at each intersection and you can find connector trails to the surrounding mountains (Tiger and Squak) and get even more miles out those. It is all single track and all the hills are runnable, but challenging. Most of the trails lead you by waterfalls at some point. Very beautiful, very fun.
