I've enjoyed this trail for years and have watched the improvements made. it's a great easy trail any time of the year, great walk with kids.

It's a small walk not really a hike but I love the setting and great for a quick outdoor fix.

Great for kids! Easy trail with tons of nature to see, wildlife and water (more ponds than lake). Stays green even during some of the hot, dry summers seattle has had. About half the trail is a well kept boardwalk. Took about 50 mins, walking stopping at all the sites.

I visited West Hylebos with my sister and the niece and nephews last summer. The majority of the trail is boardwalk, which was dry and easy to walk on. It's also mostly flat so it's great for kids or older people. It was a nice walk but at the height of summer on a hot day it is a mosquito haven. You'll want to make sure you go protected! There were a lot of great plants and wildlife, information plaques are sprinkled throughout the trail and there is a peaceful little vantage point that looks over a small lake around the midpoint. We all enjoyed the walk very much and would definitely go again.

Not impressed...the boardwalk was very well kept which is convenient because you don't get your shoes dirty in rainy season but altogether I thought the trail was a bit lacking and not too much to see. Kids got bored within 15 minutes of starting and completing the loop was a struggle

Kids had a blast fun place to let them just run, also tons to look at including lots of different birds ♡♡

Great walk for inclement weather. We plan to return to see all four seasons.

There were only a few people out today, so there were a lot of animals that were out and about. The trail didn't have much of an incline and made for a very nice run. The boardwalk was dry and very nice and there were a lot of flowers everywhere. I'll definitely be coming back!

Not a single person on the trail this day, lol. Trail was clear, but icy. Boardwalk was frosted over and super slick. Plants and trees were frosted and oh so pretty. Enjoyed the day out with the family.

I love this trail, nearby work, can be done on a lunch hour. Most of it is on wood pathways. Lots of wildlife, birds, butterflies, rabbits, ducks and heron (on a good day).
