WalkingGreat!

in the absence of directional or historical or interpretive informational signage, just followed the leaves on as many loops as they'd take me.

Lots and lots of stairs. Otherwise well maintained forest walking trail.

It was a nice quiet trail. Not a widely maintained trail, bt a nice one. We didn't see any directions on the way, but followed the all trails path. Couple of times we had to cross roads and not much of view. Overall a nice walk though.

WalkingGreat!

I like stairs and, after exploring around (including a trashed homeless encampment) I think I found a good little loop for me: by starting on the 22 stairs on the other (lake) side of Lake Washington Blvd by the Frink Park sign just down (south) from the Frink Creek Bridge and going up 166 more stairs and wooden step dug into the hillside to 31st Ave. allows coming back down on the trailhead just to the north on 31st Ave at Jackson St down to the Frink Creek waterfall and then across the road to circle around to thee initial 22 stair start. 0.6 miles. Lots of variety in this little gem of a now urban hillside, though, and I like exploring around the historical parts of the park too, e.g. the Bullitt-like brick fireplace across (northwards) S. Frink Pl and the 51+10 old concrete deroding stairs up to Yesler that my grandfather might have walked 110 years ago from Queen Anne to go enjoy a day on the lake too.

HikingGreat!

As a fan of stair workouts, e.g. 863 wooden stairs and bin steps in Mercerdale's Hillside Park, I've long been interested in the concrete stairway coming out of the woods just below the Frink Creek Bridge on Lake Washington Blvd and, checking it out today, found that its 31 concrete stairs lead to a trail with 135 wooden bin steps up to 31st Street where you can walk up the street less than a block along 31st St to E. Yesler St., and come back down on more trails and stairs even leading down through Leschi Park as per the AllTrails 1.3 mile route recommended start at all the abundance of parking along Lakeshore Drive and the Leschi Marina. With no sign posts and no names for any of the interior trails, a personal recording on the AllTrails navigation app was essential to keeping on track and helping come across the natural and historical features, along the way, e.g. the Frink Creek foot bridge and mini-waterfall just upstream from the Frink Creek Bridge that was part of the public works projects associated with the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in 1909 that my grandfather used to regale me with. Also find (a) 52 steps on a century-old concrete stairway on a trail branch up to below the Mooncatcher Memorial on E. Yesler Way (b) unnamed remains of a brick fireplace and brick wall surviving into the hillside across from the tennis court, (c) numerous benches thoughtfully placed along the way too. Maybe sometime the more regular neighood users can come up with some appropriate historical and/or commemorative names and signposts. That would be nice

Serene but narrow trail. It was unclear if I followed the recommended route but I wasn’t far off at least. Super exotic views with tranquil sights and sounds, depending on the time of day it can be busy and of course, good ol NW, you can smell pot once you hit Lake Washington. I especially love this run for the great incline options and can’t wait to discover more around this neighborhood.

no trail markers/blazes. I kept taking wrong turns and ending up on roads looking for the next bit of trail because there is nothing indicating which way is the main trail. I was running and didn't have my phone on me, otherwise the alltrails app would have been helpful to stay on route. the trail itself is well maintained. not a bad option for taking the dogs for a walk, but not recommend for runners.

Didn’t see a soul - nice little hidden trail. We cleared some cobwebs for the next folks.
