This was a beautiful place! I took my five year old and he enjoyed walking around too! We were there for an hour. Great place to take family photos. The flowers were beautiful and I can’t wait to go back in the fall!

Awesome! Stroll great views of lake Washington and also spotted various wildlife like turtles ducks herons Hiked on 5/31

This hike is truly a great escape from the busy city! It took us 20 minutes to get there and we started hiking right away :) The trail is narrow in parts and decently trafficked so I would recommend wearing a mask or scarf down around your neck to cover your mouth when people pass by. There were a lot of couples on this hike which always makes seeing attractive men less exciting. We hiked the loop counter clockwise and after descending down to the water, I was blow away at the view! This hike features great forest, beach, and cliff moments which is quite a unique find so close to a major city!

It’s the happiest we’ve seen our Great Dane since moving here five months ago.

A seattle favorite, heavily treed, creeks, some homeless camps dampen the experience though

Paved, easy, no elevation gain noticeable

Beautiful trail. A ton of green cover helped us stay dry on a wet rainy day. Never overly busy.

I love this hidden gem. Every season brings new things to look at. Gets muddy easily because many springs cross the trails. Highly recommend.

Ran this trail yesterday 5.24.20. It was a beautiful day. The trail is well maintained. Although Camp Long facility is currently closed, the trail is open to the public since the gate is still open. It is so nice running along all the obstacle courses that someday I wish to have the opportunity to join. Very blessed the trail is so close to my house and not so far out from the city.

Beautiful trail and views! Slightly muddy at this time.

Beautiful but crowded

Ran this trail 2 days ago on 5.23.20. The park is so beautiful with the playground (currently closed for the pandemic situation), a super wide/spacious area with Seattle skyscraper views compatible for both biking and running, a dog park and of course the trails packed with the green of nature. I feel like this is such a hidden gem. Will come back to play the with the Zip lines at the playground when the health crisis is over.

A great hike/walk. A little muddy in spots, only made difficult when strollers and tots on bikes try to use the trails. Physical distancing can be difficult in many spots especially with the increasing volume. I changed course from the lighthouse loop to the main loop (~3 miles) because of the volume of people. Still, a great trail with lots to see and you occasionally forget you’re still in the city, even if only for a moment or two.

on the south side of the capitol hill hump, and quite worth the extra step. First impression is: What a Marvel. Second impression: let's wait until the pandemic is over; I suspect it gets crowded.

Make your own loop.

This is my favorite Seattle Park. The views of the Sound and the Olympics are awesome! I absolutely love this Trail. I do a figure 8 loop to make it 8 miles. I’ll start off running then when I get tired I’ll continue walking.


Well maintained trail, a little muddy. Beautiful views. Parking lot is still closed. Many people in the park in general, but this trail was not crowded.

washed out

Some large sections washed out as swamp muck. Expect to be in mud that goes past your ankles and more. Either take your shoes off and go barefoot or wear galoshes. This is especially true on Marsh Island.

Was intending to only go on this 0.6 mile hike in the Schmitz Park Preserve but it took me >1.3 miles to find the “trailhead”/gate of the park. Never thought Apple Map would disappoint me but it did today. Google Map came to the rescue thankfully! But anyways, it was a very nice jog around the very rich-looking neighborhood near Alki beach (i.e. some gorgeous flowers turned my head literally) before I actually did the hike in the park. It was raining so the ground was muddy at some parts in the park. I did my best to accelerate when I could. Very proud I didnt fall on my butt at least once though because the muddy parts were really slippery. (The fact that my shoes didnt have good grips didnt really help either.) Yet overall, a very nice short walk with elevation.

An excellent urban hike. I did this as part of a loop where I started and finished at West Seattle Junction. I added the Longfellow Creek Trail system as well as the Pond Park up the hill on Juneau. It all made for a good half day of hiking.

Easy walking loop

Did a variation on the hike to focus mostly on north beach. Beautiful day and not overly crowded!
