Love coming here each time I visit Seattle. Easy to walk around and navigate and take in both the views and the market.

Great night walk. Very easy to stay on the trail.

Beautiful park, gorgeous views. ❤️

Good morning hike with Rich and Prajesh. It was weird starting the hike in daylight since we’ve been use to hiking this trail in the dark over the winter.

Once you get past the first switchback its so beautiful. Lots of different paths you can take. Beautiful apple orchard on the way down! With people flowers all throughout

beautiful day and great walk.

We loved this trail and so did our pup! It had everything from covered trails to beaches and prairies! 4.8 miles in about 1hr 45min.

the difference between this being a walk and hike is the beach loop, love this place.

*not shaded *hardly and parking and was crouded * did not like

Very small parking lot, just enough for 5 cars.

visited for the first time last weekend. gorgeous views and paths. my family loved it.

Quiet, very light traffic. Love it, great place to just enjoy nature without having to go too far away from the city

Love it! Quiet,fun, and beautiful view. Beware of waste water plant near, in some places the smell was distracting. You can hike along the beach, or take tame trails.

Shaded trails some roots mid trail. But, considering the traffic this park gets it’s very well maintained. Evidence of consistent trail maintenance is everywhere. Only problem is that there are some “unofficial” side trails that lead to some very steep cliffs on the west side of the park, above the railroad line. Children should be cautious and watched carefully on these trails especially.

relaxing, close to town hike.

Easy, well maintained pathways. Azaleas are in full bloom.

I walk through Volunteer Park almost every day. Great place. Climb the water tower for great views in all directions. The conservatory is free on the first Saturday of each month. The park is particularly beautiful in the spring, when the trees are blossoming. There is no lake, though -- it's a reservoir, all cement, and fenced in completely.

Easy course, Ocean view, dog friendly, a little bit crowded, but still great.

Beautiful and nice place to walk

I love this trail! I am a 24 year old female in relatively good shape. For me, this isn’t so much of a hike as it is a nice walk. There is very little include, but there are some steep stairs you’ll have to take. This park is very wide open and there are options to customize this trail to what you are looking for. There is a beautiful part of the walk along the beach and light house, and it can get a little chilly with the breeze so I recommend wearing layers. It’s great for dogs and families, and going on runs. It’s well marked and there are several large parking lots to choose from.

Beautiful scenery and dry trails.

The off-leash trail was busy, but fun and easy to navigate. The on-leash trail was a little overgrown, but quiet and varied enough to make feel like it was more removed from the city than it really is. Perfect for someone who just wants to get out of the house with their dog for a while.

Nice trail around a beautiful park! Great place for a mellow walk or an easy trail run.

Very busy on a Sunday but expected! Great place to spend with family and get an easy walk in.
