Great hiking trails to choose from. We hiked the shy bear which was 6 miles and took 2 hours. My only complaint is that the porta potty's were discussing.

All the positive reviews are correct. This is a great park close to the city, fantastic for a day hike. But there is a hidden gem of Cold War history 100 Yard from the Sky County Trail head. Image a base of Nike Missiles located...More

It is very hilly and steep in some places, but the choices and options for runners and hikers are excellent. Also has good signs and markings to help all visitors.

This is such a great place for a day hike that is close to the city. Since it is in the hills, you are walking either up or down the trails, not a level hike. It's great to see the wildlife and native plants. Trails...More

I'm a bit biased because my house practically backs onto the park, but I spend so much time in here running and hiking the trails. They are very well maintained, trees get moved very quickly if they come down in a storm, trails get graded...More

Miles of trails, some leading to waterfalls, missile silos, and historic mining relics. Some animal sightings. Beautiful, easy trails. You'll often find small groups of happy people and their dogs in the parking lot, with lots of cars, on a beautiful day. Get there early....More

We went walking here as tourists. We downloaded a map onto our smart phone and used that and the trail signs to navigate. It was easy to find our way around. We walked about 4 miles and did a circular route. The forest is old...More

So much history, so expansive, so accessible, and so unknown. I used to live within a few hundred yards of one of its many trailheads and spent many hours on pleasant hikes. This park is addictive if you just try it once.

There are so many options available for year-round hiking on Cougar Mountain. Families, dogs, all are welcome here. No pass is needed for parking, which is a big plus too. Be sure to print a map (available online or at some of the trailheads), as...More
