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.

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.

This is my boyfriend and i's favorite place to walk our dog! There's water for her to play in and a paved road all the way around the park, there's also trails all throughout and you forget you're so close to the city. It's so beautiful and one of my favorite places in Seattle. Highly recommend!!

Trails in the woods were empty but as soon as I got on the main path I saw people frequently. A lot of people by the water. Nice family area but not great if you want seclusion.

Great walk through the woods on a beautiful day. The trails are marked with nice posts at the junctions. My 5 year old made it through all 2.5 miles of our route.

The paved walkway around the park is spacious and accessible for any skill level. There are great scenic views as well as small beaches and trails that cut through the woods in the park.

I walked the paved trail around the park and it was not busy, but there were definitely other people walking or running at the same time (~10am).

Nice little walk. We didn't do any of the little trails in the woods, just the loop. Its a really pretty walk. We will go back another day and explore the woods.

Great easy walking trail with beautiful scenery. You can go back and forth from wooded terrain to gravel to the beach shore.
All of the wooded trails are very short, but if you explore a little - taking various paths then follow up by walking around the beach path, you can get a decent workout in.
Very pretty views of Seattle in the distance and lush dense woods!
Very easy trail, Nice for biking and running.
