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.

Always a great alternative when I can’t make it to the mountains

It was nice, in general, with bridges, a creek, and nice trees, but compared to others, not great. It is poorly marked and there were a few tents and trash under the bridges. I went in the rain just to get out, and it served my purpose, but I'll look for another trail next time. Given it's awesome location, I might be back with a better review.

Beautiful scenic trail through the woods and heart pumping elevation climb. Some of the down hill paths are very muddy this time of year. Personally, I fell twice and left the trail coated in mud but still enjoyed the walk.

Great daily walk! It is beautiful and accessible in all seasons and weather. Does get crowded on holidays and when weather is good.

This is a neat, well-maintained loop. The western section offers picturesque views of the bay, beach, and lighthouse.

Good city hike. Paved road, good for biking.

Nice neighborhood stroll on a paved path around the lake. Great for walking your dog or catching up w/ a friend.

Beautiful, easy hike that makes for a lovely weekend stroll. Bring the kids or a dog and enjoy change of scenery as the trail goes from woods to coastline beach. Some areas were a tad muddy for walking shoes, and the area by the lighthouse can get windy in the winter.

Nice and chill trail. Fun for all ages. Best time to visit is when the sun goes down and enjoy the sunset on the beach.

Very fresh air

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!!

We live right by Olympic Sculpture Park, and are lucky enough to walk on this trail most days! It is absolutely stunning and well-maintained. Make sure to stop and enjoy the scenery every so-often, or you’ll miss the views (or an orca, or a sea lion).
