Hiking Trails & Climbing

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned hiker, there are plenty of ways to explore Bellevue and the surrounding region on foot. The abundance of local parks and trails makes it easy to escape the bustle of the city without ever having to leave the city. Spot native wildlife from the wooden boardwalks at Mercer Slough Nature Park; see Bellevue bloom into Spring at the Botanical Garden; or simply get lost in the moment while winding along trails through the forested wilderness of Weowna Park.

For a steeper trek, head east on I-90 to the Cascade Mountains where you will find countless trails leading to lakes, peaks, creeks, and waterfalls all within a short drive of Bellevue. Some of the most popular hikes in the area include Twin Falls, Rattlesnake Ledge, Mailbox Peak, Mount Si, and Poo Poo Point.

Interested in learning more about native wildlife? Join Bellevue Parks & Community Services on a ranger-led hike or attend an interpretive program.  To find upcoming programs and hikes, check out our calendar of events. For more information about Bellevue's parks and trails, stop by the Lewis Creek Visitor Center or Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center to pick up trail maps, brochures, and program information or chat with a Park Ranger at the Lake Hills Greenbelt Ranger Station
