Description

Starting from near the Red Town Trailhead, this doubletrack trail leaves the Red Town Trail on a slow, steady climb up Cougar Mountain. There are old mining caves in several spots along the trail. The larger of the caves are barricaded and have warning signs around them about the risk of falling or poisonous gasses coming from the ground. Be cautious with small children in these areas.

The lush forest growth gives the trail a magical quality as it traverses rocks and exposed roots. At the end of the trail, runners can connect with several other trails within the Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park trail system.
