It’s a good hiking course for beginners. We could enjoy this course easily, because they don’t have hill. I want to recommend you to go on sunny day! But there are some problems. Its about sign. We lost many times, because there are no sign and incorrect signs. We could enjoy even being lost, but they have to make more.

Today I went on this trail and it was great. At first the trail was confused us and we got lost but in the end we found the trail and keep hiking. The trail had a lot of different plants and was a beautiful day to hike. Personally I really enjoyed and I would do it again in the future

In my experience, this lake is fantastic and well worth a visit. This place is a good place to bring family to enjoy the endless natural beauty. Here you can see a variety of people and many activities. A lot of people come here to breathe fresh air, bike, and walk along the river to see the scenic beauty. Especially, if you have children, this is a place that can not be ignored. I recommend coming here on a nice sunny day - very beautiful and uplifting in so many ways. I would definitely go back here for a relaxing afternoon and some nature time.

This trail was wonderful for me to hike. The lake and trail were hard to find for a bit because they are hidden by big trees; in addition, there were only few sigh on the street. However, if you look up carefully, you are going to be okay and enjoy. Actually, it was my first hike like this spot. Even though it is little bit hard to find them, it was fun. Getting lost is also going to be a good memory. I actually got lost, but it is also true that I saw some nature that I didn't expected in the way of lost. I really recommend this place.

This is a great trail, we went to the lake to lake trail today. The lake and trail hidden in the city, just like some magical, heavenly place. I didn’t know that. My childhood dream is I can live in a place where the house hidden in the forest, today I saw. The human live in harmony with animal and natural. While you are walking down the trail, you can saw some people greetings with you, you can saw a cat walking towards you and invited you to touch it, you can saw ducks walking around people. That was the scene of my dreams.

I went to the trail as an activity with classmates. The trail seems suitable for beginners or people who want to walk with no pressure because it wasn't steep or rough to walk. Actually, we couldn't find clear signs for directions, we got lost at first. However, walking around the lake with nice weather was really great. I could enjoy casual hikes there. Also, I can say it was close to walk than hike.

Today, it was my first time to go the hiking. It was a good experience I enjoyed it, but the only problem I had it was about sign mark. My class and I,we had difficulty to find our ways. We got lost three times. We asked some people that we met and we asked them our ways. When we were walking today, we found some sign that was not in proper place. My suggestion you should make the sign mark more efficiently and precisely to find our ways even new people who try to have a new experience and fun.

Today we had an activity with our teacher. I could say it was a very wonderful experience. We visited two lakes that were very beautiful. We saw animals there: cat, frog, wild ducks, and so on. During our journey, it was always a beautiful view, and we were immersed in that beautiful environment. There were also lots of people around those two lakes which meant it was so enjoyable. Everything was so natural that we did not want to leave those fascinating place.

Phantom Lake Park is a 1.5 to 3 mile hike near Bellevue College. Today I hiked with my teacher and classmates. This hiking is not very hard for me, especially on a good weather’s day, the hiking have so much fun. In my opinion, most people will think this hiking is quite easy, because the road is not so far, and also flat. We always lost today, the road from lake to lake is not very easy to find. We saw a lot of animals, such as ducks, dogs, cats, birds and so on. If you’re prone to allergies, you need to prepare some medicine in advance, because you need to be exposed to a lot of plants. In summer, it is also necessary to prepare some insecticides.

I took a class of students there and had a good time. Yes, I would definitely do this trail again — it’s pretty easy and both lakes are incredibly beautiful little lakes. On the negative side, the trail isn’t always very well marked, so we actually got lost for about 10 or 15 minutes. At times, the trail is really confusing with all of the different paths, adjoining streets and intersections, etc. We actually had to stop and ask a couple people if we were going to Larsen Lake. Overall, it’s a nice easy hike that takes about an hour and a half

The length of the trail is suitable for me. It took me around 7000 paces to walk from lake to lake, which is healthy to the body. It would take around one hour if you walk quickly. The two lakes are hidden inside the farm and park. Separated from the noisy environment, the lakes gave me a peace. I didn't feel tired, especially walking with my classmates together in the beautiful weather. I think it's a good trail for walking after dinner. After a whole day's working, you can relax here.

The waterfront along Lake Union is beautiful. There is a museum and paddle sports rentals and multiple eateries to check out. It is great for a Sunday stroll.

Great to do if you happen to be in the area but don’t make a special t up just for this one.

Watch out for ALL the homeless. Don't go alone. Don't go at night. How about just don't go.

Really tranquil place for a solo run, even this time of year. Dogs not allowed per signage, not sure if it’s enforced through. LOTS of people setup with camera equipment for pictures that made the paths a little crowded.

This trail is great for walking, running, biking, horse back riding, skateboarding, rollerblading and is very kid friendly. It's a paved trail with occasional side trail that parallels the trail (mainly for horse back riding). It is a very active trail with multiple places to start.

On the Snohomish side on the trial, you have a skate park, library, a boys and girls club, a soccer dome closeby and other things I may not have mentioned. As you walk North the trail crosses many busy roads with cross walks. It passes by my daughter's middle school. There are many places where the trail feels secluded between black berry bushes. There is a nice park by the Machias area where my brother and I used to play as kids. This area has grown and become quit popular. I have not traveled North of Lake Stevens but I do see it cross a busy road with a light for traffic in the Marysville area. However I do not know much more. There is many places where the trail crosses creeks and rivers. fun place to enjoy the sounds.

This trail is very kid friendly and easy for kids of all ages. Strollers are widely used. Bikers will easily sneak up if they don't announce themselves behind you (This includes rollerbladers). I've seen several people with dogs on leases and highly trained off lease dogs. I've also seen horses on the trail.

Easy access from apartment nearby. Beautiful autumn leaves everywhere.

A lovely little walk around a pond. Ducks and geese swimming in the pond. It is a well maintained path with many benches to sit down along the way. It is very close to private houses, but in October the place was unbelievably quiet and overall the place feels kind of like a magic garden. The trail starts at the back of the Cabana Pool parking lot.

Easy path to walk, paved.

One of Spokane's best sights. Lots of stairs/steep hills, but very worth it.

Not the best trail in Spokane, but it's worth a visit if you are like me, looking to do every possible trail. I have read rumors online of this trail eventually tying into others. Such action would probably improve the quality of the trail, as presently it is a little sketchy.
