You'd never know you were within Seattle, great place to get lost for awhile.

Great but crowded place for a walk or a run.

Great scenery, rain or shine... for those who want to swim in the lake...On top the lake (boat, kayak, etc.) cool, in it, oh my no.

Honestly best enjoyed on a bike and with some patience.

Biking douche bag's recreating a Tour De France time trial , Passive aggressive's unleashing their pent up anger, neck beard's of sweat & stale IPA's, yup it's the Burke.

Beautiful and peaceful. It's Seattle though and the homeless will at times camp out here but in my many, many strolls through here, I've never had an issue with them.

Very cool area. Great assortment of food available. Went on a weekend, very crowded, but fun.

Great walk for being in a large city ! Excellent views

favorite trail by far

A beautiful day today. Lots of people out with their friends, families, and dogs.

I just moved to Seattle and wanted to do a hike close to the city. This one didn’t disappoint. Its a great trail but definitely not super easy. There are plenty of stairs to ascend down the bluff to the beach. The descent is steep so wouldn’t be good for strollers. It was muddy in some spots but not bad. There are plenty of stopping points that you can sit and take in the stunning view. The beach is beautiful and I got to see some sea lions. It is a very active trail with some runners. One place I will be going back to.

4/19/2018 (Thursday) - Walk along the river on both sides of the Bothell bridge. The good view on both sides is nice. In summer and fall, the trees may provide good shade too. I take the folk to the campus of UW Bothell, and the trail is connected to the North Creek Trail, which I will try in the near future.

Fun place to visit, lots of sea food and stuff to see. Fun for everyone! Cant wait to visit again!

Was a great place to spend some time by the water

Very beautiful path. I was on a road bike and it’s nice that the paths keep a rolling gate to them and that the signs for when to walk your bike were easily visible.

gorgeous views, decent bird watching from time to time, and best crowded place to walk briskly the loop is 3miles. great place to workout, or catch up with friends and family.

I love it here there is usually ample parking. the magnolias are stunning right now!

Beautiful trails! Saw a family of seals swim off the shore, enjoyed the sunshine, met some awesome folks (and pups) throughout the day. Easy parking, and you can take the bus there too!

Very short out to Puget on a bike. Not really good for a major cycling work out. Good trail for people who want an easy workout. Good running trail. Takes you out to Puget Sound. Has trails off of the pavement. You good take a mountain bike on the off shoot trails.

is very nice the falls and everything

beautiful Place to Walk en relax with a nice view

This trail offers a picturesque view of the bay and downtown Seattle. But the constant traffic noise is somewhat irritating.

The views.

Great easy trail with nice views and some spots to stop for a picnic.

Being in the city can be stressful and having access to green spaces like this are invaluable to mental and physical health! This is a great place to walk to get your fill of chlorophyll when you can't get out for the weekend. Most trails are gravel, which means access for those who have difficulty walking. There are numerous benches along main paths to stop and rest if needed. You are able to get both green and blue scenery with trails that lead to Lake Washington. You do have to cross under ST 520 to get to the lake but the bridge construction will soon get rid of the walking tunnel under the bridge and make it more pleasant. 4 stars for accessibility and only one star off for the noise of the cars, but hey in the city that's a given!

Go to place for an easy walk for my pups!

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.
