Explore the most popular road biking 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.

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.

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

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.

5/3/2018 (Thursday) - Start from Montlake/WA520, pass through the park by Azalea Way, then go along Madison St to the lakeside park (Madison Beach). Azalea in the park has not been in full blossom yet. It takes about 70 minutes for a relaxed walk. A very pleasant city walk in a luxurious residential/commercial district. The view across the lake is awesome.

Very nice my trail. It is my favorite trail with green river trail.

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.

Honestly best enjoyed on a bike and with some patience.

Biking douche bag's recreating a Tour De France time trial , Passive aggressive's unleashing their pent up anger, neck beard's of sweat & stale IPA's, yup it's the Burke.

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.

A beautiful day today. Lots of people out with their friends, families, and dogs.

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.

Very beautiful path. I was on a road bike and it’s nice that the paths keep a rolling gate to them and that the signs for when to walk your bike were easily visible.

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.

I love it here there is usually ample parking. the magnolias are stunning right now!

This trail offers a picturesque view of the bay and downtown Seattle. But the constant traffic noise is somewhat irritating.

The views.

Being in the city can be stressful and having access to green spaces like this are invaluable to mental and physical health! This is a great place to walk to get your fill of chlorophyll when you can't get out for the weekend. Most trails are gravel, which means access for those who have difficulty walking. There are numerous benches along main paths to stop and rest if needed. You are able to get both green and blue scenery with trails that lead to Lake Washington. You do have to cross under ST 520 to get to the lake but the bridge construction will soon get rid of the walking tunnel under the bridge and make it more pleasant. 4 stars for accessibility and only one star off for the noise of the cars, but hey in the city that's a given!

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.

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.

this park is in a sad state right now, didn't enjoy it a bit

Air is not very fresh.

Recent wind storm made some trails inaccessible or closed off. Did make a decent hike out of it before the ferry

Great place to walk
