This will be a custom route to Coal Creek Falls and Far Country Falls. The route will be more-or-less a loop so that we'll also go through some of the western portion of Cougar Mountain. This should make for a good hike to end the day with since Cougar Mountain's trails are well marked and in usually good condition.

The park closes at dusk though seeing as dusk will be at 9:46 PM for the hike we should be able to finish the hike with time to spare.

Prior to signing up for this hike, please take into account the following:

  • Adults only (≥18 yrs old).
  • Bring illumination. Even though we'll get out before dusk, it's likely that it may be dark in the forest.
  • We'll be going at a casual pace.
