The Talus Neighborhood in Issaquah offers a truly unique living experience. Located 15 miles from Seattle and just 20-30 minutes to most of the area's major employers, this "urban village" offers something for nearly anyone.
Enjoy hiking? Talus is nestled at the base of Cougar Mountain and has access to a trail network of about 200 miles and a nature preserve of more than 20,000 acres. Totaling 630 acres in size, you might think that Talus is quite dense and heavily populated. However, only 25% of those 630 acres are developed and lived-in, leaving a great expanse of untouched nature surrounding and flowing through the neighborhood.
Since there are such great expanses of undeveloped and enhanced wild areas, Talus residents regularly see such wildlife as white tail deer, woodpeckers, raccoons, opossums, and perhaps even the occasional bear. No animal attacks have been reported in the neighborhood, however.
