Great walk/hike, especially when hiking with little ones! My three year old walked most of it herself. I love how spacious the park is - it feels more like a nature walk.

2.5 miles around wash park. People with dogs are not considerate at this park. Nonetheless pretty area to get a quick run in.

Great area to run. 8 miles around the park Starting at the East entrance. There are a lot of trails in the park and connecting to the park for the long runs. If you're going for a long run or a short run you can find it here. It is also very scenic and has wild life.

Great day, easy transition from farmland to mountains. Helped acclimate to higher elevation. Had two knee surgeries, trail was easy on knees. Loved the view.

3.5- Directions on All Trails does not lead to a parking lot or trailhead. Google Bear Creek Park instead. Paved walkway. Not a Loop. A LOT of bikers whizzing by which rarely ring bell or alert you. A few Benches but no trash cans unless you go a mile west to the playground. Homeless camping near creek. Not bad for a quick close one but I wouldn’t choose this again.

Easy and enjoyable walk for a Spring evening.

A hidden Gem- look east and you’ll see the city and west you’ll see the mountains. Cool developments near the new light rail.

Nice trail for me and my dog. Moderately busy, especially when the ball parks are in use.

I love Sloan’s Lake Park. Great for walking with the pup!

Pretty area right downtown for some nature time . One side is for pedestrians and other is for biking and roller blading . All paved . Pretty, clean creek and dog friendly ! Walk alongside the city skyline!

Nice area for walking. But the trails closer to the outer perimeter of the area are best for avoiding the crowds (kids, bikes, rollerbladers) who use the interior cement sidewalk.

Nice trail. Lots of trees and shrubs.

Nice place to jog. Not too busy. Paved and natural trails with plenty different loops.

Fun park to run, or just hang out in. Usually pretty busy, and lots of water fowl so watch out for poop! Nice paved path that goes completely around the lake, with a few dirt paths that also go fully around and closer to the water.

It was pretty disappointed day to begin with.. I was planning on going to a 6 mile hike but something came up and I had to change my plan. Then I still wanted to enjoy the nice 65 degree weather, so looked up near by trail and came to this one. It was short trail, so I didn't want to run but to walk and enjoy the sound of birds and water. Very nice and quiet trail. Glad I checked this one off from my list with a satisfaction.

The views are beautiful. Parking was easy.

Nothing exciting about this "trail". Neighborhood run.

great place to have fun and camping

Great people watching location and interesting history behind the park. Decades ago it used to be a cemetery and when they were repurposing the land for park use they weren’t able to find about 1,000 unmarked graves. As you walk on the park soil you are probably stepping over someone’s remains so tread lightly!

Nice path to walk with our 3 y/o, paved for the majority and at just under 2 miles it was a perfect distance. A kids playground at the end was a nice surprise also. The GPS route takes you on the dirt trail (a little muddy in February) but there’s an adjacent paved walkway which follows a similar path.
