Wilderness Peak Professional Review and Guide
"There is no view from the summit of Wilderness Peak, but the trail up and back is still very nice. Even better, the trail is less than 20 miles from Seattle. That makes it a perfect after-work hike year-round. The mixed forest of maturing Douglas fir, red alder, mountain hemlock, western red cedar, and maples form a rich mosaic of vegetation. The interplay of sky and sunshine filtering through the many shades of green is immensely pleasing to the eye. For these reasons it’s easy to comprehend why the trails of Cougar Mountain are so popular."
