trail locations for Seattle, Washington

This is one of my favorite places! Love the trails and lookouts. Catching the sunset by the lighthouse/water is magical. On a clear day the beach offers beautiful Mt Rainer views. Going on a weekday evening, it use to feel like we had the entire park to ourselves. Good access to restrooms and parking. Coming from Indiana, I never could get over how tall the trees are and how tiny they make everything look in comparison.

Can be busy but I love walking or jogging around this lake. A consistent loop good for tracking your time and measuring improvement. A good place in the midst of a city to bike/skate/walk/jog with a pretty lake view.

F*ckin great.

Great childhood memories ...

The winter garden is absolutely deserving a visit during spring.

I love this trail it is the best trail ever

Such a beautiful place! Lots of little places to look around and dogs are allowed! Also has pretty waterfalls you can walk up to. Not very crowded either

Absolutely amazing. A bit of everything. Even strenuous around the beach area. The views are great yes but the trees are really what did it for me.

Nice view on the bay

This is my boyfriend and i's favorite place to walk our dog! There's water for her to play in and a paved road all the way around the park, there's also trails all throughout and you forget you're so close to the city. It's so beautiful and one of my favorite places in Seattle. Highly recommend!!
