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

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

Flowers going off rn

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.

Schmitz park is so so beautiful. An easy daytime stroll!

This is a nice short trail but it is very narrow and steep in places. You can get to the beach by taking the paved path down and back and avoiding the difficult part, or make it more challenging by taking other trail. Nice picnic areas at the top and a beach at the end.

Very big incline going up & down

Pleasant and gentle trail. Lots of possible routes you can take. Not too busy. You get the lake and ponds and wildlife. Dog and I enjoyed it.

it was definitely a nice walk with beautiful scenery. I went counter clockwise because I didn't want to climb back up, definitely suggest it. nice strip of beach with private property on both sides. ended up having a nice conversation with a gentleman on the way back up.

The views of the beach and Mount Rainier are breathtaking on a clear day. Lots of dogs around. Some moderate inclines but was a great hike.

Short but pretty in the middle of a suburb. it was definitely muddy in spots

good walk (December) but the picture with water is not right unless I go towards Foster islands.

Beautiful lush forest in the middle of town but feels like you are miles away. Trail splits in 2 if you stay on the upper trail there is a Bear den with tracks leading in. Be cautious but very cool, would recommend!

This trail may easy for anyone who wants to go for a walk with other adults or older children. This trail is difficult for anyone who desires to trail run or anything besides a leisurely stroll. There are two ways you experience this trail which is either steep grade downhill or steep grade uphill. I walked 90% of this and it was still difficult… I was passing several people that were on a leisure stroll with their families because they were having a difficult time walking up hills. Most of the trail is very narrow so if it’s busy, you will have to wait behind others or sidestep them.

Lots of yummy blackberries, views of the marina, and a lil rocky beach access to the sound!

Nice short scenic walk, easy as described. Walk to beach super easy, but walk back up to parking is steep. There are strategically placed benches in case you need to rest for a sec.

Great urban hike with wonderful plants, water life, and a Japanese garden.
