The Cougar Trails project provides several miles of walking and jogging paths.
Designated jogging paths and interpretive trails provide all-weather walking surface wide enough for two people. The other unimproved trails are typical of what you would find in many forested areas of the region.
History of the Cougar Trails
The Mill Creek Riparian Interpretive Trail has been incorporated into the WSU Vancouver Cougar Trails System. It is designed to expand our knowledge and understanding of the ecological functions of plant and soil systems that border a waterway. Maintaining good water quality in Mill Creek is necessary to preserve a healthy environment for the fish, wildlife and people who live in and along the creek.
