I don't think I completely followed this trail but the park is pretty nice until you start approaching the lighthouse. I think there's a sewage plant nearby so on a hot summer's day the smell is pretty overwhelming

Dog friendly! My golden retriever had a great time running and swimming!

One of Burien’s hidden gems.

This trail was awesome, you’ll be able to walk and see the beautiful shoreline. Half the shoreline is covered by rocks/pebbles, and the other half sandy. A park area you can play in. Grill areas you can reserve, one area has an awning with a fireplace. Enough space to social distance.

Great during the weekday, weekends can get crowded. The loop is awesome, it has beautiful views, side trails, a great to take pictures, and Good for social distancing. Bring bug repellent during warmer whether, and the trail around Foster island is under construction.

STUNNING walk. Paved trail wide enough to accommodate a stroller *and* social distancing. Will definitely return soon.

At 33 weeks pregnant this trail was absolutely amazing for me. It was just the right amount of elevation and distance for me to feel like I got a good work out without over exhausting myself. I also brought my mother and nine-year-old son who enjoyed the walk as well. BEAUTIFUL views! Would highly recommend.

great inner city walk. lots of trails. scenic if you also walk Foster Island. Very easy and great walk with kids.

Pretty trail to walk.

A wonderful midweek walk through Seattle's Discovery Park! With unobstructed views of the high peaks of the Olympics and the towering Mt Rainier made for quite the day! Saw a few turtles on the beach which was cool. Soaked up some sun while we ate lunch and made our way back to the car, after stopping by the old Fort Lawton area for some pictures. Definitely worth a trip if you have some time to spare and want to get some fresh air!

The trails wasn’t hard, you have to make sure you read the signs to go where you want, there are a few great stopping points on this trail. You could also plan a picnic and bring that with you. Dogs should be on a leash at all times.

I live close to here and I love running and walking through this park. I am often here weekly running, walking or birdwatching.

Empty trails this rainy friday morning. I parked along Madison St. as the parking lots are still closed. Plenty of parking available along side streets though. Wide trails appropriate for kids and social distancing.

This was our first experience on the Burke Gilman. This trail is amazing, beautiful route through north Seattle. Lots of shaded areas and great views along Lake Washington. The whole family enjoyed the day.

Super kid friendly city stroll

Easy, but beautiful walk. Kid friendly and dog friendly.

Easy and beautiful

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!
