Exploring the Issaquah Alps

If getting outside more with the kids remains on your bucket list this fall, we’ve rounded up five kid-friendly hikes in the Issaquah “Alps” 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 exploring in the woods on any given day.

Okay, it’s time to get out there and investigate our local Issaquah “Alps!”

First up: Pretzel Tree Trail
