    Table of contents

    The Sky Country to Harvey Manning Loop is a 6.8 km loop trail in the northern part of Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park that is rated as easy. This hike can be done year-round and my most skill levels, with some modest incline gain being the only consideration. Enjoy the quietness of nature on this lightly trafficked route.

    Route Description for Sky Country to Harvey Manning Loop

    The Sky Country to Harvey Manning Loop is an easy-moderate hike in northern Cougar Mountain Wildland that features a verdant forest. It’s a nice way to get outside and doesn’t tend to get very busy at all. The little creeks and hidden waterfalls of the park are best in late spring, so we recommend visiting early in the season.

    Begin from the parking area. Take either the middle or right trail, as they are both part of the loop. You’ll hike either trail to where they converge to form Bypass Trail. Cross the creek and then the trail splits again. There is no better way to go as the elevation gain and descent are similar whether you’ve traveled clockwise or counterclockwise. The turnaround point of the loop is at the Million Dollar Viewpoint.
