Des Moines Creek Trail is a 3.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Seattle, Washington and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and mountain biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Lets be realistic... This is a trail in the middle of an urban area. This is not a secluded nature tail in the mountains. So given its urban location, this is one of the best trails to take to get outside and enjoy fresh air and exercise. Double thumbs up. Except there are no potties at the SeaTac entrance. That's a bummer.
easy walking trail, great for jogging because it's flat. beautiful
I love this trail it is the best trail ever
It's a nice trail for beginners. it's a clear path with nice visuals of nature. the only downside is the water treatment plant that get a bit smelly. other then that it's a nice clean and friendly trail.
If you start down by the water, the hike is a good moderate uphill trek. Only downfall for me was the water treatment plant around mile 1. Kinda smelly and gross while you're trying to breathe and legitimately exercise. Other than that, it's a decent paved trail with a lot of people.
It's ok for a beginner like me
Too many people for my liking. I prefer solitude while hiking!
Nice walk, good exercise, sounds of the creek are relaxing. Only complaint is no honey buckets at the north trail head. 4 miles is a long way with no restroom when hiking with kids.
Enjoyable walk/hike through the lush greenery and near the creek.
