It's a short walk with an amazing splash of colors. Perfect for a family walk or a quick photo backdrop for couples.

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.

5/12/2018 (Saturday) - Azalea bloom not as impressive as last year. Walk from new parking lot by the new bike path at the south end of Azalea Way. Walk to Foster Island lakeside, but return from the muddy section.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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