Over the weekend I hiked up to Coal Creek Falls in the Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park. Its a nice little hike with this great looking waterfall & stream in the center of the trail. Look below for some more pictures. I’ll definitely be coming back with the Camera in the coming weeks.
Total distance traveled was about 4 miles. Most of the hike is a super highway but it can get pretty muddy in some areas… Lots of people on the trail.
I originally found out about this trail through the Washington Trails Association, which is a cool website that lists all the great hiking trails throughout Washington state. Here is their article about Coal Creek Falls, and here is an article about other great winter trails that I plan on hiking in the coming weeks.
From Seattle, take I-90 east. At exit 13, go right onto Lakemont Boulevard SE and drive 3 miles. Just before a long bend in the road, go left into the parking area.

[…] ended up taking a second hike to Coal Creek Falls a couple weeks ago and recorded some video while I was […]
I haven’t been there yet, but will have to keep this in mind for a lazy weekend, or a sleep-in Saturday. The sun is staying out a bit longer, but we still don’t have too much daylight, so it’s good to have a list of not-too-far backup hikes…
Those photos are great for an iPhone! Is there any way to mount it on a tripod, out of curiosity?
