Hiking Cougar Pass

The Cougar Pass Trail is a short connector in the northern part of Cougar Mountain Regional Park. It links the Klondike Swamp trail at its western end to Tibbett’s Marsh Trail at its eastern end. In the middle, the Cougar Pass trail also connects to the Harvey Manning Trail. The shortest access to this area is from the Sky Country Trailhead via Clay Pit Road and Klondike Swamp Trail.

This little trail is important because it provides the opportunity to combine together any of the trails named above to form a variety of loop hikes.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

From I-90 eastbound take exit 13 and head south on Lakemont Blvd SE for 2.2 miles. Turn left onto SE Cougar Mountain Way and proceed for 0.6 mile before turning right onto 166th Way SE until you reach the Sky Country Trailhead, another 0.7 mile. The parking lot has room for 50 or more vehicles but spaces fill quickly. Porto potties available. Park hours are 8:00 a.m. to dusk.
