Kirkland, Washington Map

We had a great time and plan to come back. The trail has great views and a brewery stop, but doesn't offer much of an elevation change. Great easy family trail for a weekend stroll.

Very easy and beautiful trees. Not very trafficked early morning.

Great lake

I took my boys 5 and 9 for a hike. We decided to do the uphill part first. Trail went up and down, has beautiful views of enormous trees, Sylvia the 600 years old tree is unbelievable! My kids had a great time and even learned about where and how salmons lay eggs and saw the salmon ladder. Then we went swimming on the other side of the road. Played in the playground...a great day! Highly recommended for a short (45 min) moderately challenging and gorgeous walk.

This was a super easy trail, very flat with only a couple easy hills. Horses use the trail so be prepared for lots of horse poop. This would be a great trail for biking or trail running. The trail is really well labeled so you don't get lost.

Great hike, but a lot of horse poo-poo required us to always keep our eyes on the ground.

Loved it!

Great walk in the woods

Took my kiddos, 6 and 8, out for a little stroll and to get them out for a small hike before we did more over the summer. This is a nice walk. I always choose to start on the opposite end of the loop and do all of the uphill first. There are some spots along the path that are muddy and slick so watch your step. The walk along Denny Creek is nice but not as impressive as many others. It does the trick though and is still a pretty walk through 2nd growth forest. After the hike we went across the street and enjoyed the park and the views along Lake Washington.

July 2017 - Decent, accessible and flat trail that cuts through various neighborhoods of Kirkland. We started at the South Kirkland Park n Ride at the bottom end of the trail and walked to the 3.5 mile mark at corner of Crestwoods Park, then back for total of 7.0 miles RT.

There's a fair amount of traffic in form of walkers, bikers, runners. Wide enough though that you don't need to stop to let others by. Terrain is packed gravel and dirt, so it gets a little dusty in dry conditions. Also, not a lot of cover or shade so I was grateful to have a hat.

Passes behind some fancy residential areas with enviable views of Lake Washington and Seattle, pleasant woodsy areas, and light industrial. The trail goes straight through the immaculately landscaped Google campus and the public playground they built on it. There is also a local brewery right next to the trail, Chainline Brewing.

Pleasant walk

all for horse only, parking $10 , also no bathrooms, only come if u going to horseback riding

This trail is rated as easy, but for someone out of shape (like myself), it was much harder. The last half of the trail is all uphill and many parts of it were covered in mud. This is not accessible to wheelchair bound or other disabled folks (I had been told that it was). It was, however, quiet, not very trafficked, and well shaded. I'm not sure I would do this again.

More of a casual walk than a hike. Signs are hard to find on the trail.

Short but sweet
