The Cougar Pass Trail is a short connector in the northern part of Cougar Mountain Regional Park. It links the Klondike Swamp trail at its western end to Tibbett’s Marsh Trail at its eastern end. In the middle, the Cougar Pass trail also connects to the Harvey Manning Trail. The shortest access to this area is from the Sky Country Trailhead via Clay Pit Road and Klondike Swamp Trail.

This little trail is important because it provides the opportunity to combine together any of the trails named above to form a variety of loop hikes.
