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.
