Interesting walk through the food and craft Mecca of Seattle

nice in summer after dinner

I’ve been utilizing this trail for over 15 years and not bored with it yet. There are so many areas to access the trail that one could possibly hike/walk for several days straight and never cover the same area twice. This is a great trail if your training to run or walk a marathon. Only drawbacks are that it is very flat (if your looking for a bit of a workout) and high traffic including cyclists. 15 mph signs are posted for cyclists, but almost completely disregarded.

I still have yet to make it into the city on this track but definitely great for checking off miles!

Nice stroll, not too far and easy.

This was, and will be once again one of the greatest places to visit in Seattle.

The love of my life! It's a shame that most people will never see the fine architectural detail of this building up close. Near the top is an observation deck that has a bar and a great view of Pioneer Square.

The newest addition to the area is the Weyerhaeuser building. The Architects at MITHUN did an incredible job adding a glass building that reflects the historic architecture of the area.

2018/09/08 Saturday (Hiking Date). Good 3 Mile Walk around the lake. Paved road throughout the trail and beautiful lake. Kids play area and rest rooms at multiple points. Best place to spend time walking together as family.

I love this place. I've been in, outside, on, underneath, and throughout this great place. Please bring a pack with your 10 essentials for this one. Trekking poles optional!!!

8/28/2018 (Tuesday) -- Sunny afternoon, 1 hour leisure walk from NW to SE, 2 miles. The paths through the Sculpture Park is free. The trails are designed separately for bikers and walkers. The best place in Seattle downtown to walk along the shoreline of the Puget Sound. It is officially called "Elliott Bay Trail". The northern section from "Fish On" is closed.

I have to say, I think it's hilarious that this is mentioned as a 'trail'. HAHAHAHA! It is always fun to walk around Pike Place. Fish throwing etc. Classic.

Love going for long runs on this trail

8/12/2018 (Sunday) -- Flat easy loop with awesome lake view around wetland and "Kite Hill" for 1 to 1.5 hours in a dry, warm, cloudy day. Very pleasant.

You can never go wrong with a stroll along the beach. Loved this.

A great way to just 'get out of the city ' without having to drive out of the city. Beautiful area.

The great intersection of this city. Yes it’s crowded but it’s still beautiful and a great place to walk/run/bike/skate/swim and get some exercise. Makes for good people watching and there’s always something going on. If you want to go someplace to connect with the energy of the city, this is the place!

this is a great urban riding paved type trail.

Ok walk along Pikes place market. I’ve walked here several times for shopping and to take my out-of-state friends sight seeing. I give this four stars because this would be a very nice walk for a tourist but it is nothing special for someone who is local.

Smells like a dirty bathroom. Not a pleasant or safe place to be. Watch out for the human feces. I would rate it a zero if possible.

it's what you'd expect of an urban trail.. lots of people, especially bicyclists, but the trail is quite wide, features a nice view of the bridge and the water and Gas Works Park is a neat park all on its own, featuring views of the Seattle skyline and is a great place to end.

I took away a star because the bathroom stalls aren’t big enough to push a stroller into and there’s no changing tables. But this park is beautiful, I love the coast and environment. We’ll definitely be going back.

Awesome, took the trail from Bothell to Matthews park. Very nice ride, beautiful views of the water from the trail and parks along the way.

Fresh produce and people watching.

Stenuous hike filled with switchbacks. Lots of E gain and losses. Will definitely need an ice axe and crampons in the spring and winter. Great inlets with fresh fish.

I sometimes go before work. I grab a coffee, maybe snatch up one of the first Proskey Proskey as they open and watch the market stir to life.

Easy, great people watching and beautiful for sunsets, meeting friends and an easy place to get a little space in the big city

Love the array of things you see and smell on this walk. It was very busy on a Sunday mid morning but it was nice!
