Here is a warning from trail users this morning. Remember that Moscow Mountain is home to many animals. Please be respectful and stay vigilant:
MTN. LION WARNING. At about 10am this morning, we ran into a cougar on Private Lands. It was on the top of the hill just after the first bridge after the trailhead. Our large dog, Molly, got rolled, bitten, and chased, but got away when my wife distracted it by yelling (thinking it was a dog). The mountain lion paced back and forth about 15 or 20 yards above me while hissing (obviously wanting to follow my wife and dog), and was not at all concerned about me yelling and stomping my foot. It finally meandered away after a minute or two, but didn't seem in a hurry.
