Big fields, forests, trails, a pool, a beach. Just a great park right in the middle of West Seattle. Lincoln Park is West Seattles major multi-purpose park a nose-shaped bluff on Puget Sound just north of the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal. Switchbacks on the north and gentle trails to the south connect a mile of seawalled, rocky beaches to a bluff of grassy forests and meadows with play and picnic areas galore. Amazingly diverse for its size, Lincoln includes 4.6 miles of walking paths, 3.9 miles of bike trails, five picnic shelters, acres of playfields, and an outdoor heated saltwater pool and bathhouse.
It was a nice walk but definitely pretty crowded.
Beautiful. A little busy but fun and friendly.
Terrific views of the Olympics. Nice little switch back trails that lead down to the Sound.
4/9/2016 (Saturday) Group 10:00 - 11:30, sunny, cool, pleasant 55-60F. The park features a broad beach road of half mile, lots of woody trails, big trees, kind people of all ages, and serene ambiance, not as crowded and noisy as other popular parks in Seattle City,
It's so close and easy to get to! In summer, I often try to be walking along the shore around sunset; I often go early for some sunbathing.
Most of what you do here would not be seen by most people as 'hiking' but there is a lot of 'forest walking' to do as well as beaches, picnics, a pool, etc. So if you are looking for a pure hike then dont come, but if you looking for a good park with some nice walks and you don't want to leave Seattle then this is a great spot.
