Meet with other local Active Dogs Owners. All breeds are welcome but they must be dog-friendly!
This group is a place for dog owners to gather, share info and resources on all things dog related and a great way to make new friends! Meetups include dog walks, hikes, dog parks and restaurants allowing dogs! Suggestions are encouraged!
My name is Jessica and I am your organizer. My life revolves around dogs. I own two mini Dachshunds and have been blogging about dogs for 4 years at http://www.YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner.com; I own my own business PetTalk Media - a pet-industry blog and social media consulting service (among others, I work frequently with local pet sitters, dog walkers, rescues and small businesses); I am the founder of one of Seattle's largest Dachshund clubs - the Adventureweiner Club of Seattle (here on Meetup); and you can hear me monthly on the KIRO Radio show It's Raining Cats and Dogs. Please feel free to contact me through my Meetup profile with any ideas or questions about the group!
**There is a $1.00 fee when you come to a meetup (unless a different price is listed for it) to help with administrative costs. Meetup.com charges organizers monthly to have the website and I felt this was the fairest way for members to contribute.
This is a pretty easy hike in the Cougar Mountain area of Issaquah/Bellevue. It's 2.5 miles round trip. Coal Creek Falls isn't running during the summer but hopefully we will be getting enough rain that it will be now. When it's running, the falls is 28 feet high.
This trail used to be notorious for its muddy conditions but thanks to a reroute completed by WTA in 2014 your shoes should stay relatively clean. The current forcast says we might only get light rain at worst but heavy rain will cancel.
Directions: From Seattle head east on I-90. Take exit 13, West Lake Sammamish/SE Newport Way, turn right at the end of the exit ramp onto Lakemont Boulevard. After one mile continue straight through the stoplight. The trailhead is on the left (east) side of the road after an additional 1.8 miles along Lakemont Boulevard which turns into Newcastle-Coal Creek Road. The turnoff for the trail is located along a sharp bend in the road. There is a large blue King County sign that is hard to miss at the entrance.
There is a large parking lot at the trailhead, but it’s heavily used and fills up quickly so plan to arrive early in case you have to have to search for a parking spot.
Note: Carpooling is encouraged. Comment below if you have space in your car and are willing to pick someone up.
