Excellent, paved, flat, level path with beautiful views.

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.

Beautiful, easy hike that makes for a lovely weekend stroll. Bring the kids or a dog and enjoy change of scenery as the trail goes from woods to coastline beach. Some areas were a tad muddy for walking shoes, and the area by the lighthouse can get windy in the winter.

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.

Very fresh air

I've made only one trip to Seattle and Pike Place Market was a must see for me. The amount of fresh seafood and beautiful produce was staggering....if I lived in Seattle I'd be here several times a week!!

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

We live right by Olympic Sculpture Park, and are lucky enough to walk on this trail most days! It is absolutely stunning and well-maintained. Make sure to stop and enjoy the scenery every so-often, or you’ll miss the views (or an orca, or a sea lion).

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

A quick and easy escape from the city. There is access to the beach and an overlook for seal watching, but I haven't seen any.

Great place to walk

Nicely paved flat trail in a valley which follows the Des Moines Creek to/from 200th and the Des Moines Park/Marina. While the trail is amidst neighborhoods... it feels very remote and is mostly serene. There is a short part of the trail which passes a waste water treatment facility... so there's a funky smell for less than 100 yards of the trail. We are generally out and about midday on weekdays, so we rarely see other people on trails. We had this one to ourselves most of the time, passed about 3 other people. There are adequate trash receptacles for doggy poo bags, so it's makes this a great option for people with furbabies!!!

Park at either the Des Moines Creek Park lot or at the lot just off 200th and 20th.

We prefer to park at the Park near the Marina... so we can walk the pier and let the dogs play on the beach at the end of the out and back trail.

Dog friendly on leash or dog off leash with excellent use of verbal commands. Most of the time in the fall there is plenty of space for everyone on the trail especially during the weekdays. Crowds during weekend.

Beautiful, peaceful gardens.

Super easy to navigate, well maintained, gorgeous!
It doesn't get much better for an inter urban park!

Super easy and fun!
