Where are good places to run on some nature trails near Seattle. I prefer to run through mountainous terrain uphill. It looks like Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland park is the only place on Google Maps.

The best one is the Redmond Watershed Preserve, and I also like Soaring Eagle Park in Sammamish though not as many acres and gets more muddy in winter.

The Tolt Pipeline Trail has a lot of ups and downs. Runners, walkers, mountain bikes and horses. There are numerous access points.

Tiger mountain is an excellent spot - close, but enough altitude to make you work a bit. I like the West Tiger 3 Loop.

Tiger Mountain is probably your top candidate. A common route for those training for 50+ mile ultras is called 12 summits. It starts at High Point and goes over Tiger summits 3, 2, 1, East, Middle, South, then back again. It is about 34-36 miles with 10,000+ feet of gain. There are many other options out there as well. The Nook-Section line trail is a huffer for sure, gains altitude quickly, and is used by many for getting some elevation work in for ultras.

Highly recommend the 204S Tiger Mt. map from Green Trails, https://greentrailsmaps.com/maps/map High Point parking area is straight I-90 west, exit 20.
