Beautiful views, but weather went bad!

Worth the drive out for a relaxing beautiful run. You can run easily and enjoy the views or go all out. Recommended for a “recovery run”

Best on clear days when you can see Mt Rainier hovering over Lake Washington.

9/8/2018 (Saturday) - Mostly cloudy, 62-68F, cool early fall morning. Nice view around. Peaceful environment.

beautiful park, not so crowded in the morning of a weekday. many pretty dogs, some unpicked dog poo poo though.

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

Great experience with my 3 yr old girl. Beautiful trees along the way and breathtaking lake view at the beginning and end of the trail. Perfect for family activity.

This loop was rather easy to traverse. I needed to clear my mind and close my Move ring on my Apple Watch so I hit this trail. It helped me achieve both. Also, you never tire of looking at the beauty of Lake Washington and the verdant hills laced with homes that rise from its shores.

With my stroller went and remembered I wanted to buy a jogger that’s better for trail rides. My 3 & 5 yr old enjoyed it. I went from bottom of loop about a half a mile in and back my 3 yr old was out walking half the way. About a half a mile into it saw a sloping down and a series of stairs at two points of fork in the road so I headed to go back but along stop at the serward park trail and desired to leave the stroller to just go down to bay and back up. The kids had a race. My muscles started to burn and my 3 yr old had to crawl up a few steps they were big for her. It was a good time. I did hear about of wild life around but I wasn’t able to catch anything to defy. I look forward to going more regularly .

A beautiful day today. Lots of people out with their friends, families, and dogs.

Very busy park, go early and explore the upper trails.

Run run I run it too!

I don't consider this as a hike, just a simple walk with beautiful views of Lake Washington.
I did this a few weeks ago.

Lucky day .. awesome experience ..have fun not take it serious ..

Highly recommend you try this trails at least once in summer. We went on Sunday in mid July late morning .
The trail around Seward park is bit busy with people walking ,pets , kids etc. make sure you enjoy the ride .. take a break in the beach area facing I-90

Now the real gem.. the Sunday we went was bicycle Sunday and the road beneath Seward was blocked for car traffic and open for bikes .. A nice and real experience and we so many kids enjoying the big wide road ..

Tip: Early the better, very few parking inside.
Take your kid..

great views, super busy along the outside but lots of trails through the middle, plenty of mosquitoes in warm months, and some spots of poison ivy. lots of goodness for a land set aside to be a park.

Beautiful on a sunny day. The whole loop is very flat, but if you want to go deeper into the park where there are some grassy picnic areas, it's more of a climb.

Lovely park loop, no elevation gain, paved road the entire way. I enjoyed walking it close to sunset. It is quite popular and there is certainly no shortage of people. Good for a nice urban walk.

Some nice views of Mt. Rainier and Lake Washington.

Great place to walk your dog, for kiddos to play at the playground or for an easy hike. Beautiful views. Clean park and play structures.
