7500 Lakemont Blvd SE, Bellevue, WA
Let's meet at the Red Town Trail head on Cougar Mountain and hike the following loop: (Wildside, Indian, Far Country, Shy Bear, Fred's Railroad, By-Pass, Cave Hole, Red Town)
We can always add more if it's a nice day and everyone has extra energy. The mileage and elevation are estimates. Most of the trails on Cougar mountain are rated as Easy....that does not mean completely flat!
Please know your own abilities for your safety and the safety of others.
THIS HIKE IS SELF GUIDED!! - There may or may not be a coordinator in attendance. Be responsible for yourself and those you hike with.
Bad weather (Heavy Rain/Snow; high winds; etc will cause me to cancel this hike!!)

All organizers run their hikes different, but it takes time to set up these hikes, time that we are volunteering for YOU. If you are a repeat last minute cancel you will automatically be put on the waiting list for RSVP’s. If you are a no show 3 times, you will be removed from hikes.
