This trail has it all! Hike through the woods, sandy bluffs, Meadow, or down by the beach. Spent my early afternoon here and it was lovely.

Amazingly not much crowd at 5 pm today ... wonderful trail !!

Fun hike close to home. There were some steep hills that work your calves. We took our dogs and ran into quite a few people with dogs. Started this hike about 2 and it was moderately populated. There was a little bit of water in the waterfall.

I was super excited to see all the views with water, but sadly the water was all dried out. It’s got really pretty tree views, cool little bridges, and it’s a decent work out. We ended up getting lost and took an extra 2 miles some where off the trail lol but it was alright just more excersize and pretty views for us! Also, when you get to the “top” there’s no real view to look forward to. Not a bad hike at all, I’ll retry in the fall when I can see the water but if your looking for a view at the top, you won’t find it here.

great hike nice and quiet.

I’m visiting Washington so I decided to drive around Seattle in search of scenic views. I saw pictures of this place online and decided to check it out. Definitely a nice park and the view of Puget Sound is nice at sunset. Had the chance to see the train pass under the bridge so that was cool. Nice place to have a bonfire and relax.

So nice to meander along the Coal Creek looking for little babbling smallerfalls and enjoying the coolness of the little valley. Up to Primrose Loop and back to the main path is nice to get an out-of-city experience in the shade, while staying within the city limits. Bonus points for the gorgeous and plentiful creek bridges all smelling freshly of oil and pine:

The falls are beautiful.

But this used to be a place you could sit by the water at the end of the trail and have a picnic. now they have it all caged off.

You can never go wrong with a stroll along the beach. Loved this.

Seward Park is one of my favorite places in Seattle. Love it.

This was lovely. The views were amazing. Fun to do with the kids. Would do it again!!

More of a nature walk. All the same it was gorgeous. And we had a grand ol time. Went with my three kids: 6,4,1

This was definitely more of a walk than a hike. It was stroller friendly and just a great outing for me and my three kids (ages 5,3,1)

Trail is ok..make sure to put on bug spray lots of mosquitos all through out the trail.

2 big uphill sections (relative of course)
all the water is dried up along the way but cool and green all over
a challenge for kids but doable!

Much of the trail follows a beautiful stream through relatively dense woods and ferns. The trail is both long and attractive, especially considering its proximity to the city.

The great intersection of this city. Yes it’s crowded but it’s still beautiful and a great place to walk/run/bike/skate/swim and get some exercise. Makes for good people watching and there’s always something going on. If you want to go someplace to connect with the energy of the city, this is the place!

My favorite spot in the entire city. It’s the one place where you can feel like you are out of the city even though you are practically downtown.

The Loop Trail is actually only 2.8 miles around. Same distance as Greenlake but with some elevation here. This AllTrails route includes an extra detour down to the lighthouse and back up to rejoin the loop (there’s a south spur and a north spur that come down from the Loop so you go down one and back up the other to make this larger loop). Going down to the lighthouse is well worth the extra distance as the near-360 degree views of the sound are breathtaking. But for those who might not want to go that far, walking the standard Loop Trail through lush woods and grassy meadows offers plenty of beauty and tranquility for a city stroll.

Living in the neighborhood, I am lucky enough to enjoy evening walks after work on a daily basis. I’ve been doing it for a couple decades and never get tired of it. I doubt that I ever will.

great walk with the dog definitely had some switchbacks but I was able to make it without a problem

Good for a morning walk with a buddy! A little anti-climatic at the turn around, but interpretive signs were pretty interesting. I’d do it again.

Trail is fine but can be steep.

Beautiful, easy trail. Not many views, though. There is a cool meadow restoration halfway through that is worth reading about. Lots of history along this trail. Perfect for if you need to get some exercise and live nearby, but it doesn’t offer any of the typical PNW views.

Tip: grab a map at the entrance. It is easy to get lost, as there are many trails that intersect.

This is a great trail I take to get to De Leo Wall trail. One of my favorites for my daily hike.

A great hour and a half to 2 hour loop! Enough work to keep it interesting, but never too much a challenge to not be fun.

It was a very nice but there were no signs or warnings of the difficulty of hike. The way down was fine but the incline coming back up was horrible. If you’re not in shape or don’t have water with you I wouldn’t hike down. You can see the waterfall without doing the hike down.

Easy to navigate trail, extremely crowded on the weekends so if you’re not up to that then I suggest going on a weekday. The trail down to the water isn’t bad, but going back up may elevate your heart rate a bit! The water is beautiful and my boyfriend went swimming in there. Lots of people brought rafts or tubes.

Beautiful forested path along a creek. Some elevation. Dog friendly.

Coal Creek - Red Town Hike. It’s Good. You can walk or run (almost) through the entire trail. Half of the trail runs by the side of the creek. It’s serene.
Without rain there is little water at this point, but it’s still beautiful. Reasonable amount of Parking space down at Coal Creek Parkway. Kids friendly, Dog friendly.

Hiking, swimming, nature walking, cool park! Lots of trails but lots of hills.
