Squak Mountain State Park is a 1,570 acre day-use park located less than 20 miles from downtown Seattle, WA in the area colloquially known as the “Issaquah Alps”. With its proximity to major urban areas, dense forest, great views, 13 miles of hiking trails and 6 miles of hiker/equestrian trails, it's clear why Seattleites flock to this region every day of the week. Take a post-work jaunt through the network of trails, or build up a sweat and hike to the summit, all while remaining close to town.
The park is open from 6:30am to dusk in the summer, and 8am to dusk in the winter for hiking, running and horse riding. Note that bicycles are not permitted on the trails.
