Hiking Radio Peak

The Radio Peak Trail travels for just under half a mile in the northern reaches of Cougar Mountain. It is part of the vast trail network in the park and does not have its own devoted trailhead.

Start out from the Sky Country Trailhead travelling east on Clay Pit Road for about 1000 feet before reaching the turn off for Coyote Creek Trail on your left. Take this for half a mile. At the first fork turn left on the Radio Peak Trail.

The Radio Peak Trail climbs gently to a high point before ending at the park boundary. Along the way a short spur trail splits off to connect with an adjoining neighborhood.

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, just west of Issaquah, take Exit 13 and head south (right) on Lakemont Blvd SE. In about 2.3 miles turn left onto SE Cougar Mountain Way. In 0.6 miles, turn right onto 166th Way SE. Follow this street (stay left at 166th Pl SE, a minor side street) and in about 0.8 miles come to the Sky Country Trailhead and its large parking lot. Along the way, the street will have changed names to Clay Pit Road which is gated here at the trailhead. Toilets are available at the trailhead.
