A real decent hike and a great trail run, too.

Beautiful old growth forest tucked in the city. Great for all levels and dogs. Good for waking or jogging. Can get muddy in some areas. Stay on the trail- theres poison oak, ivy and stinging nettle if trail.

The views from the bluff out over the water are really nice and the beach is a nice play to sit and relax. due to the rain we have been getting parts of the trail were muddy so bring shoes you don't mind getting dirty. If possible go early in the morning as it gets pretty packed from noon on.

Nice walking trail, some waterfront. Trail goes by a great, huge dog park.

Delightful loop trail around green lake. Quite busy on the weekend. Lots of dogs on leashes and good people watching

A fun little trail. I did this with a 4 year old and it was about perfect. The people who said this was fine for a stroller were on drugs.

Fantastic and surrounded by food!

Nice paced paths and great water views

Beautiful views, but weather went bad!

Nice easy walk and the lake is beautiful year round. Our kids 5/7 can happily cycle the loop while we walk or jog.

My favorite go-to spot for a good light trail run (sorry hikers and walkers) near home. Road shoes are fine because the trails are well-maintained and mostly free of rocks, roots, and mud. Bonus: the "Stinky Mile" along the North Beach. Be prepared to take in a few mouths full of sewage processing stench!

Walking, food and fun!

Safe, loads of people and great dog watching:)

I took my 4 year old daughter for her first real hike here, it was a perfect trail for her first outing. It’s a short hike with virtually no elevation gain and very busy.

Beautiful, leisurely hike. Crowded on a sunny day but lovely views of the skyline.

Awesome quick and easy hike right in the heart of residential area! The cool part is that it's in a valley so you don't really notice or feel like you're in a residential area. Quick and awesome little Jog if you live in the area, 100x better than runnin on pavement. It's got good groomed gravel.

A nice walk in a pretty day.

Relaxing, safe, easy walk. great views and people- and dog-watching.

My favorite Seattle hike when the mountains feel too far away. Just watch out for all the trail runners;)

Little gem in town.

Forest in the city. Nice alternative route to walk through town.

Worth the drive out for a relaxing beautiful run. You can run easily and enjoy the views or go all out. Recommended for a “recovery run”

Wonderful fun run with plenty of hills and views. Great fresh air. Beautiful run.

nice in summer after dinner
