[ARCHIVED] - Thank You: Hikers Donate Lake Tradition Bench -

Lou and  Nicole Mertes

The next time you enjoy one of Issaquah’s most popular trails, stop for a rest on a new bench.

Nicole and Lou Mertes generously donated a wooden bench that was recently installed along the Ruth Kees Big Tree Trail.

The bench is positioned so you can sit and enjoy the largest Douglas fir tree in Issaquah. You can find the Ruth Kees Big Tree in the West Tiger Mountain/Lake Tradition Natural Resource Conservation Area.

The Mertes live in Bellevue, and spend much of their time exploring trails around Lake Tradition and Tiger Mountain. They wanted to give back to the community and offer a place to admire Issaquah’s natural beauty.
