Exploring the Issaquah Alps

If getting outside with the kids remains on your bucket list this summer, we’ve rounded up five kid-friendly hikes in Issaquah for beginners through teens! Two of the fun trails are perfect starter hikes — offering a story to read along the way in the form of storyboards. For a bit more of a trek, the Talus Rocks Trail on Tiger Mountain will impress even your teens when they see the giant glacial erratics at the top! (Glacial erratics are humongous boulders.)

You'll see that several of the hikes are add-ons to other hikes, so you can choose a distance that suits your crew and their enthusiasm for hiking in the woods on any given day.

Use the arrows above the image to scroll through the hikes, and get out there and investigate our local "Alps!"
