  • Plenty of well-managed trails to choose from. Trails are not too difficult to navigate and if you're easily list there are maps to take and posted as well in various areas. You also don't need to be an expert hiker to feel comfortable here, but you can easily find challengws if you want them. There are also a few waterdalls that make for good photo ops. Proximity to the city make this a great area to visit.
  • Hiking on and around Cougar Mountain is a great time. You'll notice different climates as you hike around the mountain. The sunny side has more growth while the shaded side is moist. Be sure to download the trail map PDF to your phone because of the maze of trails. There are a lot of signs on the trail but you may get turned around if you're not careful. Watch out for wildlife! Last time, my group ran into a black bear near the Clay Pits.
  • Cougar Mountain Wildland Park is an amazing collection of 52 trails in the heart of Newcastle. The trails are a little less than a mile on an average and offers a variety to suit everyones taste. The best part is that it has over 100 access points spread throughout the neighborhood and once you are in you can get to any trail via the interconnected network.
  • Beautifull trails, to do easy walk or good cardio power walks
  • Well maintained hiking area. Wear proper hiking shoes, recent rain means mud. Well signed trails, easy to find your way.
