For The Reporter:

The Whittaker Wilderness Peak Trailhead at King County’s Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park will be closed to all access for drainage and pavement work, June 11-15.

King County Parks crews will install drainage improvements and pavement repairs at the popular trailhead, which is located along the Southeast Renton-Issaquah Road, near Issaquah.

The parking lot and trailhead will be closed to all access 24 hours a day for the duration of the repair work, which is expected to be completed by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 15.

The nearest parking lot and trailhead with access to Cougar Mountain is the Big Tree Ridge Trailhead off Newport Way Northwest in Issaquah.

Just a quarter-mile south of the Whittaker Wilderness Peak Trailhead on the eastern side of Southeast Renton-Issaquah Road, Cougar/Squak Corridor Park also offers miles of hiking opportunities.

The project is funded by the 2014-19 King County Parks, Trails, and Open Space Replacement Levy.
