Pretty views. You walk along the water on the bluffs.

Nice hike and views for 3/4 of trail. The last 1/4 the trail disappeared and was very difficult to find a way out. This app helped! Next time I would do 3/4 to the point and backtrack.

Great hike. It was not easy to walk because there where al lot of loose stones on the beach. But its worth it.

For being inside of Seattle this is a great place to spend your day.

Very enjoyable walk along the beach. Lots of cool big driftwood up on the beach. Some nice tidepools right before and right after hole-in-the-wall. Lots of mussels, snails and starfish in the tidepools. The day we went it rained off and on but was still very enjoyable. There were lots of campers there. Beware of small pockets of "quicksand" both me and my wife stepped in some and went up past our ankles, got socks wet. Make sure to go at low tide, check tide charts online.

Great little hike. Nice views of the bridge. We had read the previous reviews and did not attempt to hike around the perimeter. For families, you still need to watch little hikers near a few points along the edges.

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.

Beautiful casual hike but I don’t recommend trying to loop it. Next time we’ll stay on the main trail and hike it as an out and back. Everyone is right. It’s a poorly marked trail and can be frustrating if trying to loop.
Still worth it though!

It was nice, very easy little hike out to the lookout decks.

It is muddy and slippery in some places, but the view points at the end are spectacular. We got to see nesting Murres and listen to their cute calls.

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.

Beautiful walk on the beach - mostly sand but some pebbly areas. Spotted a bald eagle in the top of a tree about halfway there. Also enjoyed exploring the tide pools around the Hole-in-the-wall to see all the creatures living there: hermit crabs, baby fish, sea anemones.

Yeah- the trail there is a little muddy right now but not that bad- enjoyed the beach. It wasn't as busy as Rialto but a bit longer to get to some of the rock formations. Still well worth it- And you will need a permit from the Makkahs

Caught in on a late afternoon before high tide when the clouds and the sun were fighting over the beach. It made for some really cool pics. Great beach hike and a must do if your in the area.

so worth it you will love every step

Woodsy hike. Good views of Puget Sound. Saw a couple of sea otters playing in the water. For a city hike, this is great. It loses a star due to the proximity to the sewage waste plant nearby. For about 20 minutes of the hike along the north boundary of the park, it was pretty stinky. I'm sure it all depends on the wind. I'd recommend coming here early in the morning (I got here at 6AM) as it wasn't busy at all. The trail looks well worn so I'm guessing it's heavily used.

Excellent view. Pleasant weather. Right time to go.

Great hike if you're looking for something short and sweet. Also well worth it to explore the smaller trails branching off from the main trail. Great views guaranteed, even with cloud cover. Tons of people on the trail though, so expect plenty of company!

The trail to the beach is a bit muddy, but well marked and easy to follow. Getting down to the beach is a bit of a climb, but easily manageable if you take your time. There were plenty of families with small children hiking without difficulty.

Wow! Go!

The hike to Hole In The Wall did not disappoint! It was a foggy, windy late afternoon walk in, but the sun came out when we arrived. Tide was out and was able to explore.

Gorgeous view on a sunny day! Went early to beat the heat and parking was no problem.

We ended going up against trend and climbing up the cliffs. It’s a good workout (ended up with 44 flights on my fit bit) but still enjoyed ourselves. Hiked with a canine companion who loved the beach and did great on the trail.

I would totally do this again to enjoy that view and the wildflowers.

Beautiful views but terrible trail marking. We went clockwise around the loop, and somehow ended up going an extra mile up and down some rock scrambles that brought us to water and a cliff face about 3/4 around the loop. Oops. We had to back track. Would love if the park could mark the trail a bit better.

I went on this hike with my daughter and three grandkids. The oldest is 9 the middle is 6 and the baby is going to be one tomorrow. It was a lot of fun. My daughter carried the baby in a front pack and the rest of us had packs with lunch and necessities. The kids slowed down on the beach part. Not because they were tired there were just so many treasures to be found. I would recommend this to family’s.

One of my favorite hikes. June and July usually have less mud. I haven’t been in a few years and the addition of stairs make the decent to beach much easier. Low tide allows you to find sea surprises.

Yes! Yes! You haven't seen it all, unless you have seen this trail. I took my kids when they were 3&5 and they did great. Highly Recommended. A favorite.

Beautiful trail...great place for beginners to experience hiking.

A beautiful hike. Easily one of the most spectacular sights in the Pacific Northwest. The road to Cape Flattery is a little long being that it's long and full of curves. Once at the trail head, it's an easy hike down to the end. There are three lookout points including the one towards Tatoosh Island and the Lighthouse so make sure not to miss them. We went in early July and the weather was perfect. We were especially lucky to see whales swimming out in the water along with Bald Eagles, Sea Lions, Oyster Catchers and a few Banana Slugs. I highly recommend this venture as it showcases the beauty of the Pacific NW.

This is a good Loop for beginning hiker.

beautiful...not too crowded, easy hike
