Explore the most popular dog friendly trails near Seattle with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

it's what you'd expect of an urban trail.. lots of people, especially bicyclists, but the trail is quite wide, features a nice view of the bridge and the water and Gas Works Park is a neat park all on its own, featuring views of the Seattle skyline and is a great place to end.

Awesome, took the trail from Bothell to Matthews park. Very nice ride, beautiful views of the water from the trail and parks along the way.

Fresh produce and people watching.

Stenuous hike filled with switchbacks. Lots of E gain and losses. Will definitely need an ice axe and crampons in the spring and winter. Great inlets with fresh fish.

I sometimes go before work. I grab a coffee, maybe snatch up one of the first Proskey Proskey as they open and watch the market stir to life.

Love the array of things you see and smell on this walk. It was very busy on a Sunday mid morning but it was nice!

We parked off of Hinds street and then ambulated thru the preserve to then take the Alki boardwalk to create a 4 + mile hike for the day. Amazing that this green area is smack in the middle of west seattle.

Nice place to stroll and grab lunch. People watching.

Pikes Place is a lot of fun to check out. Lots of little shops and tons of very fresh Seafood. The very first Starbucks is located on this route and a ton of yummy pastry and ice cream shops. This place is alive with sights and smells, arts and crafts and really neat to explore

It's a short walk with an amazing splash of colors. Perfect for a family walk or a quick photo backdrop for couples.

5/12/2018 (Saturday) - Azalea bloom not as impressive as last year. Walk from new parking lot by the new bike path at the south end of Azalea Way. Walk to Foster Island lakeside, but return from the muddy section.

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.

One of the most famous marketplaces in the country. Lots of interesting stands with a lot to offer. Food, art, t shirts and souvenirs, jewelry.

I've made only one trip to Seattle and Pike Place Market was a must see for me. The amount of fresh seafood and beautiful produce was staggering....if I lived in Seattle I'd be here several times a week!!

Nice trail for biking, very well maintained with great views of the lake. Plenty of spots to take a breather and sip some water. It merges into Sammamish river trail which makes for scenic ride along the river bank.
