Nice easy hike on a crisp fall day. Only trouble was navigation, very few trail markers/wayfinding signage.

It's a pretty walk!

Nice walk. Have seen owls on two different walks near Brook Lake.

Took a hike in the rain and I’m glad I did! We parked close to the ranger house and you can take a peak at the river before you start your hike. The trail is easy to follow and there is a fork but don’t worry, both of the paths will take you to the fall viewing area. Bathroom by the falls Incase you feel the urge to go.

easy walking trail

Nice trails to follow and educational signs along the paths. Markers too just Incase you are not sure which way you are headed. I took a good long hike with the kids and they were very tired at the end which made me happy.

Easy walking trail.

Where do I start. Following Maps to the trail head I ended up in paid parents lot. $5 for a public trail? Luckily I’m family with the area and found street parking just on the other side of 522 and used the Burke-Gilman trail to access the trail head which it adjoins to. The first part of this trail runs mostly along the UW Bothell campus before using pedestrian sidewalks to cross over the loud and busy 405 Freeway. Only a very small portion winds through protected wetlands. Next timeI will try starting out further north on trail.

Went at sunset and it was amazing!

You can be in the middle of a forest right in Bellevue. It’s beautiful. Smooth single and double track trail running.

Good easy hike. paved nice green trail. Ends at the beach... Daughter loved all the little crabs

Pretty peaceful, easy to follow trail, scenic. Great for kids! My 3.5yr old loved the ducks.

Great easy trail. Others mention mosquitos but we didn't see any probably because of the time of year. Saw lots of garter snakes in the tall grass near the river.

A well maintained and clean walking trail. Multiple picnic tables and benches along the way. Great for families of all ages.

Scenic trip - great trail surface. Views of the lake are stunning especially on a beautiful Fall day. I could see it being muddy if it had recently rained. We combined this along with the Washington Arboretum trail which made for a nice long walk/hike.

Such beautiful scenery!! Absolutely love this walk. The looped walk has small hills that leads into a couple big hills (depending which way you go, you could be going up or down these hills). If you’re going up the hills, there’s a park up at the top and they have a water fountain and dog water area. Also, a few places to take some amazing photos. Right off the loop walk, there is also a bridge where you can put a lock on. And a body of water that is so pretty, where my kids love to look for crabs.

loved this trail! will be using it for training!

Little muddy though. Went in June.

Very easy trail walk

This is a busy paved community trail that is perfect for jogging or strolling. No hiking gear is needed.

very nice and relaxing walk, beautiful beach great first dogs that like to swim!

Great trail for all ages, shapes, and sizes. Great signage and mile markers. Scenery is calming. Destination on the bay worth the short walk.

I loved this trail. Easy and beautiful!

I went here yesterday and it is absolutly beautiful. I would definitely go again.

Easy to get to. Straight trail. Nice to see the rocky beach. Not a fan of the straight hike, where it’s not a circle, I prefer circle hikes. The trees along the way are pretty and the terrain is mix of rock and cement. Easy for kids too!

More of a nature walk than a hike, although there are some (very short) steep portions of the trail. Nice little jaunt through the trees near Alaska Junction!

One of the most beautiful walks you’ll ever do!! So many amazing and lucky views!!! Usually walk it at least twice a week and it never gets old. Fairly easy a couple heart pumping mini hills but nothing major.

beautiful and peaceful
