Nature Hikes: The Pretzel Tree Trail


Here’s one for the kids: At the south entrance to Squak Mountain, part of the beautiful Issaquah Alps, you will find an endearing little hike called the Pretzel Tree Trail. The hike is narrated with storyboards throughout that tell of the adventures of “Field Mouse” as he makes his first adventure into the deep, dark woods. It’s a great learning tool for kids who are interested in learning more about the forest's ecosystem. And what’s a pretzel tree, you may ask? Hike the trail and you will surely find out. And after you are finished with this short hike, there are miles more to explore on beautiful and serene Squak Mountain.
