We watched a few very large boats go through the locks and there were tons of birds and a seal that hung around for the entire time. The grounds are pretty and it is a marvel to enjoy.

easy trail...some steep steps but enjoyed time in the beach!

Well maintained trail and provides some amazing views of downtown Seattle, the olympics, and more.

The waterfront along Lake Union is beautiful. There is a museum and paddle sports rentals and multiple eateries to check out. It is great for a Sunday stroll.

The lake is very serene and the multitude of bird species are quite used to all the human foot traffic. It is paved and a great place for a walk, bike ride, stroller or jog.

This must be done at sunset to really appreciate the hike and view. We modified the trail a bit to take in all the views and it was totally worth it.

So beautiful!!! It's a little weeknight escape for me when I can't wait till the weekend to get my fill of nature

Great trail to walk. It's clean and quiet.

It is a nice clean trail. You can either walk on pavement or on gravel. It can get very crowded however and then you have to focus more on maneuvering around people than the scenery of the park.

great walk in May. cool weather is perfect for it

With my stroller went and remembered I wanted to buy a jogger that’s better for trail rides. My 3 & 5 yr old enjoyed it. I went from bottom of loop about a half a mile in and back my 3 yr old was out walking half the way. About a half a mile into it saw a sloping down and a series of stairs at two points of fork in the road so I headed to go back but along stop at the serward park trail and desired to leave the stroller to just go down to bay and back up. The kids had a race. My muscles started to burn and my 3 yr old had to crawl up a few steps they were big for her. It was a good time. I did hear about of wild life around but I wasn’t able to catch anything to defy. I look forward to going more regularly .

Nice walk with great views of the Sound. Not exactly roughing it here with all the benches, markers and paved roads you have to cross, but you'd never guess you were only 20 minutes from downtown Seattle.

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.

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.

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.

Was a great place to spend some time by the water

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.

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.
