Beautiful trail on the water. Some sidewalks were under construction so had to maneuver across the street a few times.

Definitely need a light to run at night. Run is simple and paved and takes you towards the Ferris wheel. Nice run.

Beautiful way to get some easy exercise and get to know Seattle, and we saw bald eagles!

A little crowded for running in the beginning of the trail but certainly entertaining. It gets less crowded the further North you go and the views are amazing on a clear day. Be sure to take time out of your walk/run to climb the stairs up Pier 66 to take in the view. On a clear day you can see Mt. Rainier to the South behind the Seattle skyline and the Olympic Mountains to the West across the Puget Sound. I did this during my lunch at work so I had to turn back early but wish I had enough time to see the whole thing.

8/28/2018 (Tuesday) -- Sunny afternoon, 1 hour leisure walk from NW to SE, 2 miles. The paths through the Sculpture Park is free. The trails are designed separately for bikers and walkers. The best place in Seattle downtown to walk along the shoreline of the Puget Sound. It is officially called "Elliott Bay Trail". The northern section from "Fish On" is closed.

Great views. The mountains across the water look beautiful. You can watch the ferries and boats coming in and out of the docks. Great seafood restaurants.

We live right by Olympic Sculpture Park, and are lucky enough to walk on this trail most days! It is absolutely stunning and well-maintained. Make sure to stop and enjoy the scenery every so-often, or you’ll miss the views (or an orca, or a sea lion).

I walked this the first time in 2008 from King St station through Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market, to the Space Needle and over to Centennial Park and back. I came back 4 years later to do it again

Very beautiful!!! I stopped at pier 90 because it got too industrial & stinky.

A place to enjoy the water (and a view of the Olympics on clearer days) in the middle of the city.
