Cougar Mountain is the Westernmost mountain in the Cascades along the I-90 corridor. Nestled between Bellevue and Issaquah, it has been preserved from commerical and residential development.
We haven't done much at Cougar Mountain yet. We did a quick hike around Anti-Aircraft peak, which is a site of a former anti-aircraft battery. It has a great view of Lake Sammamish, the Sammamish Valley, and Mount Baker.
We also parked at the Red Town Trailhead and did a quick hike to the Red Town Dam. The Coal Creek Trail seemed to be a magnet for dogs.
Will post more as we explore Cougar Mountain.
