Runners should turn around where this trail meets the biking-only Cougar Ridge trail.

Need to Know

There's a view of Mt. Baker at the point where the pre-existing trail transitions to the new trail.

Runner Notes

This new trail is in great condition with almost no roots or rocks. Bring water though!

Description

This new trail connects from Baneberry Trail to the biking-only Cougar Ridge trail. This is the first completed segment of a larger expansion project that will take several years to complete.

Flora & Fauna

Very tall trees start at the new section.
