    There are so many ways to explore Cougar Mountain, and the Klondike Swamp Trail is a great pick for newer hikers. At 4.5 km long and with 97 m of elevation gain, it’s an easy enough hike for beginners. The trails around Cougar Mountain can get busy, so try visiting during the week or early in the morning. Additionally, we prefer to hike this area in spring so the numerous waterfalls and creeks are at their best.

    Route Description for Klondike Swamp Trail

    The Klondike Swamp Trail is a perfect one for beginners and a nice way to get under the trees. There are plenty of interconnecting trails in the area if you want to extend your adventure. We recommend downloading a map or GPS track ahead of time as the trails in the area can be confusing if you’re unfamiliar with the area.

    Begin from the parking area, taking the trail that initially runs parallel to SE Cougar Mountain Drive. Hiking on Shangri-La Trail, stay left through two junctions onto Coyote Creek Trail. Go left at the Y and then right onto Klondike Swamp Trail. This path ends at the Y-junction up ahead, so you can either turn around and retrace your steps back to the trailhead or keep exploring if you’d like to.

    Getting to the Klondike Swamp Trail Trailhead

    The trailhead for the Klondike Swamp Trail is near the parking area off SE Cougar Mountain Drive.
